Are you looking for a unique birthday experience for your young explorers to celebrate their special day? The Lick Creek Nature Center has the solution.
This fall, the Lick Creek Nature Center is offering B’EARTHday Packages that can be purchased for $75 when you rent a meeting room, outdoor classroom, or the amphitheater. Rentals range from $25-$120 depending on the facility and your residency status. B’EARTHday Packages also include an hour-long activity and hike led by staff.
The package costs cover parties of 10 kids and must be booked at least two weeks in advance. Up to five additional children can be added for $10 each. The birthday child and siblings under three years old are free and don’t count toward the party.
Renters are required to supervise the party and ensure that educational items are used properly and put away. At least two adult chaperones are required at all times, including the hike. Renters must also follow rental policies regarding set-up and clean-up.
We offer three categories based on your child’s interests and age group:
BUGGIN’ OUT • Ages 3-8 • March 1-Nov. 22
Discover the insects that call Lick Creek Park home. Our hike includes a scavenger hunt as we explore the habitats and food sources of local bugs. Activities include crafts and exhibits showcasing our many-legged friends.
DIGGIN’ FOR DINOS • Ages 4-8 • All Seasons
Calling all explorers! We need your expertise as we explore what makes dinosaurs so great. Activities include digging for dinosaurs, creating our own fossils, and observing dinosaur characteristics. Kids enjoy a fun lesson in an exciting, enriching hands-on environment.
GROW AS WE GO • Ages 7-12 • All Seasons
Sharpen your horticulture skills as we take a look at the plants around us. We’ll discover what plants need to survive and the importance of our interactions with the environment. Activities include crafts, a hike, and planting your own seeds.
With a variety of packages to choose from, the Lick Creek Nature Center has something for every young nature enthusiast’s birthday celebration.
