Birthday Parties


Discovery Room

Asbury Woods Nature Center is naturally a great place for your child’s next birthday party.

Parties take place year round on most Saturdays and Sundays. These two hour parties include an hour with an Asbury Woods naturalist, who will lead your child and their guests on fun nature themed activities.  The second hour of the party is for you to enjoy with your own refreshments, cake, and presents.  We have a variety of new birthday party themes for little nature explorers and elementary school aged adventurers.  The suggested ages for each party theme are guidelines.  Call the Nature Center at 814-835-5356 to schedule a party.
