Celebrate your next birthday with us—we offer fun, nature-themed options for kids ages 4 and older
Choose to hold your child’s birthday party at Flat Rock Brook Nature Center and you will have use of our classroom for 3 hours (which includes set-up and clean-up time). One half hour into your party our naturalist will lead a 60 minute program, which may be conducted indoors/outdoors. Please dress appropriately for the weather and trails. The program will be moved indoors to our interpretive center in inclement weather. Following the program your group returns to the classroom for party activities and refreshments. Group size limited to 15 children.
Prices quoted are for current members. We will gladly add $50 one-year family membership to the costs listed below. Call us to discuss booking your child's birthday party (201) 567-1265.
