Birthday Party Themes
Learn about our feathered friends for your birthday. These amazing flying animals are special in so many ways. We will go bird watching.
Service project: Make bird food garland/feeder (season dependent).
It’s a Bug’s World
Some people think insects are creepy. We LOVE insects here at the Habitat. Come and celebrate your birthday with some of our smallest friends and learn how important they are to the earth.
Service project: Based on the season, we will either plant flowers or make a home for insects.
Nuts for Trees
Trees are AWESOME! They give us oxygen and provide homes for many animals. We will definitely be hugging some trees for your birthday.
Service project: Plant or adopt a tree or seedling.
In every season there are mysteries to uncover in nature. We will explore what the animals and plants are doing during the season of your birthday…Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall…here at the Habitat, we love them all.
Service project: Seasonal, of course
