Party Guidelines

(Please call to review the guidelines with one of the birthday coordinators.)

Parents/guardians are responsible for:

  • Helping educators manage the children during the program and remaining completely in charge during the party.
  • Supporting our efforts to keep the number of adults in the program room to a minimum so the children can have a more intimate experience with the animals
  • Leaving no child unattended.  We are open to the public and there are live animals through out the house and property.
  • Cleaning up party area including bringing trash bags to dumpster
  • Limited number of adults in program area due to safety regulations

Since we are an environmental center and try to model environmentally friendly practices we ask that you use as few disposables as possible.
