Are you looking for something different to do for your child's birthday party? Come out to Fenner Nature Center and let the plants, animals, and a staff naturalist engage the children in a fun and educational program that is sure to please!
Check out our Explore Store for party favors for the guests!
Parties are 2 hours in length with a maximum of 15 children.
Fee: $100 includes two hours of basement rental, with a one-hour program focused on your child's interests. If you would like to have more than 15 children for your party, the cost is $4 for each extra child.
Program and party topics include:
Reptiles & Amphibians - Do you know the difference between a reptile and an amphibian? Find out with our naturalist through a live animal presentation. Explore the amazing adaptations of reptiles and amphibians that live right here in Lansing.
- Insect Investigators - Pick up your magnifying glass and butterfly nets for an insect investigation. Look closely and you will find that even though insects have some things in common, they are all different. After a naturalist-led hike, we will design the ultimate insect to take home.
- Pond Life - The pond is a busy, busy place with much to explore. Take a hike out to one of Fenner’s ponds to meet the animals and plants that call it home.
- Nature's Treasures - Nature is a special place that holds many treasures for plants, animals, and people. Join our naturalist in a treasure hunt on Fenner’s trails. Then, create your own treasure for other animal and people visitors to find.
- Birds in Flight - How do birds fly? Grab your binoculars and find out on a naturalist-led hike. Then, make a garland to feed the birds in your own backyard.
