We are currently unable to host birthday parties at the Los Alamos Nature Center. We will update this page when that becomes an option again!

Host your child’s birthday party at the Los Alamos Nature Center! Meet our animals, hike the canyon, or take in a planetarium show.

We offer birthday parties on Saturdays from 10 AM – 12 PM and 1 – 3 PM, Wednesday afternoons from 1 – 3 PM, and on Sundays from 1 – 3 PM, depending on facility and instructor availability.

Various themes are available and listed in our birthday party brochure (1.3Mb).

Each birthday party includes a one-hour educator-led activity, followed by an hour that you can use as you wish, for cake, presents, your own games, exploring our nature center and outdoor areas, etc.

You will have exclusive use of our classroom for the birthday party. You will need to bring your own refreshments. All food and drink must stay in the classroom or outside. We require a cleaning deposit, which will be returned to you at the conclusion of the party provided the classroom is left clean and vacuumed.

The cost for hosting a birthday party at PEEC is $100 for PEEC members/$150 for nonmembers, and the non-member price includes a one-year family membership. The maximum number of children is 12. Membership benefits include discounts to our paid programs and our gift shop, our quarterly publication Nature Notes, and our sincere thanks for supporting PEEC’s activities throughout the year.

Thanks for considering PEEC for your birthday party. Please contact or 662-0460 to check availability for specific dates.

We encourage party hosts to keep the environment in mind when planning birthdays.
