Birthday Parties

We know how important birthdays are, and while we are not offering our traditional in-person birthday parties, we are happy to help make yours special!  We are offering special outdoor in-person birthday experiences for you this year, or you can also consider our virtual distance learning opportunities or even consider booking one of our wildlife to zoom into your party virtually!

Reserve our outdoor tent and picnic tables at LSNC, to celebrate with up to 20 people total, and enjoy a half hour activity with one of our amazing educators.  Choose from a Live bird presentation, owl pellet dissection, Slime, or rockets; add-on an outdoor firepit rental as well!  Extra covid guidelines apply, including a required mask during the educator activity.  Parents need to stay with the children participating for the entirety of the rental.
