Parties are structured to allow for 30 minutes of setup, followed by a one-hour program, available in five different themes. After the program, you will have full access to the Massabesic Center or McLane Center for the second hour, for food, gifts, and socializing. The educator will remain on site to answer questions, provide access to the animal room for guest exploration, and to help with any facility assistance you might need. We provide tables & chairs and help with their setup & breakdown, but we don’t provide food or other decorations. We provide trash bins and will take the bags to the dumpster for you. You will have an additional 30 minutes for cleaning up, for a total of 3 full hours for your party

Parties are available in the following themes:

Wonderful World of Reptiles

All our reptile friends are invited to the party! Come get up close and hands on with our snakes and turtles. Party goers will love watching the turtles and touching a live snake.  

Happy Bird-Day!

Learn all about our feathered friends, make a fun feathery craft and play all kinds of bird-y party games.  

Wild New Hampshire

This party is for the wildlife lover. Explore the web of life and discover the interconnectedness of NH’s wildlife. Multiple live animals and mounts are used during the naturalist program to entertain participants while teaching them the important roles each play in our ecosystem. 

Hoot of a Party (McLane Only)

Celebrate your party learning about owls! Learn about the adaptations that make them unique nighttime predators. Practice your owl calls and make your own owl craft to take home. Group will visit the owls in our outdoor mews. Older groups have the option of dissecting owl pellets instead of the craft. 

Hooray for Raptors (McLane Only)

Share the experience of learning all about raptors with your friends and family. Group will visit all the raptors in our outdoor mews. Learn about basic raptor natural history and how the birds of NH Audubon are cared for. 

Hoot of a Party and Hooray for Raptors can be modified for the Massabesic Center but there will be no live birds.
