MORE DETAILS:

We believe that people will value wetlands and coastal ecosystems if they understand how they work and why the health of those systems is so tightly intertwined with ours. That belief is the moving force behind all our programs.


Through our summer nature programs, through our giving hands-on learning to school children who visit us or are visited by our Outreach team, we have inspired youngsters to care about the environment and to become environmentally literate citizens (and maybe even scientists.)


Birthday Parties! The Natural Place for Birthday Fun!
Are you having a birthday soon? Celebrate it with us and a few Wetlands critters!!
We offer two hour birthday parties for children ages 4-12. While celebrating your special day at the Wetlands Institute, we offer a 45 minute program from one of our educators. Our programs to choose from include feeding time in the aquarium, a trail hike and scavenger hunt, or an up close encounter with one of the following creatures: sea stars and urchins, shells, turtles, crabs, fish, or horseshoe crabs.

Parties are offered Tuesday through Friday afternoons and Saturdays. Choose back up dates in case of conflicting programs at the Institute. We apologize, but we cannot offer birthday parties from May through August due to our busy summer schedule.
