Birthday Parties at the Eleanor Buck Wolf Nature Center
A party at the Eleanor Buck Wolf Nature Center is a great way to encourage interest in wildlife while enjoying the conveniences of a party outside your home. Nature Center staff assist with set-up and clean-up, greet guests, and lead hands-on visits with the animals. Parties can accommodate up to 20 children.
All parties are 2 hours in length with approximately 50 minutes for hands-on animal activities; another hour and 10 minutes for your festivities (meal, cake, presents, games): plus 1/2 hour of time each for set-up and clean-up. The booking is a total of three hours, including set-up and clean-up. We offer flexible weekend scheduling not limited to when the center is open to visitors.
Families provide decorations, tablecloths, party ware, refreshments, and/or additional activities as desired. Use of the kitchen is allowed (oven, refrigerator/freezer, and microwave) to store and reheat refreshments. Additional adult guests may be included. The recommended maximum number of guests including adults is 40 depending on your desired room set-up.
