Additional Information for Wildlife Party Package ($200)

The Center will provide tables with plastic table covers and simple birthday decorations. You may bring additional decorations but NO balloons are permitted (these are distracting to the wildlife). We have several nature crafts or activities that can be done; someone will contact you about which one is preferred.

Host parents are responsible for all refreshments (bring or have delivered); plates, cup, etc. and clean up after the party. No refrigerator is available, so plan accordingly.

Arrival of Guests - Wildlife Party

If you have parents drop off their children at the center, let them know NOT to arrive more than 15 minutes before the party begins. Each parent should escort their child to the host parent.  After the party, it is the responsibility of the host parent/guardian to make sure that each guest is picked up in a timely manner. The host parent/guardian should not leave the center until all guests have departed. NO guest is allowed to stay on premises after the host parent/guardian leaves.

General Information - for all Parties/Tours

  • Adult hosts are responsible for the supervision and discipline of all children, which may include removing individuals from activities if they are not behaving in an appropriate manner.
  • Parking is available at the Wildlife Center next to the house (where parties are held). If additional parking is needed, you may use the Indiana Street Baptist Church lot which is just south of the Wildlife Center.
  • The age restrictions and number of individuals are FIRM. Do not show up with extra individuals “who just had to come”.
  • NO Balloons are permitted at the center. They are distracting for the birds and other animals.
