All birthday parties spent time outside, no matter what time of year it is. Please have party attendees dress for the weather. 


(Ages 8-11) Imagine you're lost in the woods! Are you going to survive? Test your fire-making and survival shelter making skills during this simulated survival situation. Dress for the weather, this is an outdoor party, with much of the program happening in the woods and off the trail.


Ahoy mate! Tree Frog the Pirate has hidden some treasure right here at Springbrook Nature Center. Bring your band of explorers and be ready to solve the clues that will lead us to the treasure!

On the Wild Side

Finally, a birthday party on the WILD side. Learn about animal adaptations, see and touch some of our resident animals, and hike the trail to find some WILDLIFE of your own!

Diggin' Dinos

(Ages 4-8) Grab your trowel and fossil brush! Head out on a fossil hunt to find pieces of a dinosaur skeleton. Explore dinosaur eggs and meet a modern day dinosaur.
