The choice of themes includes Animals (year-round, all ages), Pond (spring only, ages 8+), Cidering (fall only, ages 5+), Winter Birds (winter only, ages 6+), and Scavenger Hunt (spring, summer, and fall, ages 6+). Party held at the GNC or in your home (indoors only). Parties held at the GNC include use of the Nature's Discovery Playground before or after the party.

Privacy & Nature Center Access
If you choose to have your party at the GNC, the party room is closed to the public during your program. Siblings who are not guests of your party, as well as parents who do not wish to remain for the duration of the party, may tour our grounds or visit our live animal museum (fee required). All children must be accompanied by an adult when visiting other areas of the GNC.
Supplies & Decoration
We provide and set up tables and chairs, and ask that you provide all party supplies (food, drinks, tablecloths, plates, cups, and silverware, as needed). Please note that the GNC kindly requests that you use environmentally-friendly items that have minimal packaging and, if possible, are made of recycled or recyclable materials. Please clear any decoration plans with the GNC staff. No noisemakers or balloons allowed please! (No Exceptions) All pinata activities are held outdoors. Food must be prepared in advance, or may be delivered. There is no cooking on site. A refrigerator and freezer is available for your convenience.
Set-Up & Parking
On the day of your party you may come in to set up a half an hour in advance. There is ample free parking in our Visitors parking lot. The party hosts may unload supplies at the back of the main building and may park in the employee area or loading zone for the duration of the party.
