Party Planning

The Birthday Child and guests will engage in fun nature encounters. An Elachee Naturalist will lead a themed program, designed for the outdoors or under cover outside, then a guided visit to the Live Animal Exhibit. Your party will conclude in a reserved space for friends and family to celebrate with the Birthday Child.
