Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center Birthday Outings

Slither into the swamp for a nature-themed birthday party complete with live animal encounters! Parties may follow a specific theme (i.e. snakes, turtles, alligators, birds, bugs) or a general swamp theme. Guests gather in the Education Building's Tupelo Room and the party begins with a themed hike or craft led by our program staff followed by a live animal encounter appropriate to the theme. Party guests may then have food, cake and open presents for the remainder of the time.
