KIDS BIRTHDAY PARTIES!
Kids’ Birthday Parties in Nature
Celebrate your child’s birthday at the Blue Heron! All parties include a fun, engaging outdoor program led by a Blue Heron naturalist.
Book your party today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get on a bug’s level and see what you can find! Your party will spend time turning over logs, digging under leaves, and looking in the bushes for the smallest inhabitants of the Preserve.
Following the hunt, your party will have the opportunity to make a bug hotel to take home!
Explore the woods and creek to see if you can find clues of what animals have been visiting!
Your party will get to build your own animal homes in the woods and watch some of the videos we’ve captured on our wildlife cameras of animals passing through the Preserve.
Does your child have a green thumb? Come learn about what it takes to grow a garden!
Make a wildflower bouquet, visit with worms, get your hands in the dirt, and make a newspaper pot to start your own garden at home.
Butterflies & Pollinators
Learn about our busy and beautiful insect friends!
We will try to catch butterflies, follow a bee from flower to flower, see if we can spot other pollinators and make wildflower bouquets to take home.
Birds of a Feather
Come explore the skies looking for our feathered friends at Blue Heron. There are so many ways we can learn about birds and have fun at the same time!
Look through binoculars, find bird nests, and make a bird feeder to take home.
