Nature Center Birthday Parties

The Itasca Park District is excited to offer birthday parties at the Itasca Nature Center!  All birthday party packages include an hour-long program taught by a naturalist, and usually include live animals and/or a guided walk around our creek and grounds.


  You will then have the room to celebrate for a second hour.

Make your birthday special with a program at the
Itasca Nature Center!

Want to have the coolest birthday party on the block? Join us as we search for geodes; an ordinary-looking rock which, when split apart, reveals a gem-like treasure of sparkling quartz hidden inside.
Experience the mystery of holding a million-year-old fossil in the palm of your hand as you learn how they are formed.   Each child will receive their own unique geode and make their own fossil.
