Create wild birthday memories at Warner!
Warner's birthday celebrations are two hours long for children ages 4 and older.
Join a naturalist for the first hour to meet a live animal and head out on the trails for a nature exploration hike or activity. Live animals include an American kestrel, barred owl, Eastern screech owl, painted turtle, and blue spotted salamander. All birthday parties include an outdoor portion. Please come dressed for the weather!
In the second hour, you have use of our atrium for your own birthday celebrations. You may bring cake, open gifts, and explore our exhibits.
Birthday parties are held on both weekdays and weekends. Call or email for scheduling availability. Contact our Outreach Naturalist at [email protected] or (651) 433-2427 ext. 13 for more information or to book a party.
