How to Sign Up

To request a nature birthday party, please fill out and submit our Program Request Form. Use the ‘Custom Programs’ column at the far right of the page. The form can be mailed, dropped off at the Nature Center, or scanned/photographed and emailed to contact [at] marshypoint.org (replace [at] with @).

You may call ahead of time to see if your intended date is available, but staff cannot schedule parties until the program request form is received. Dates fill up quickly, and programs are booked according to the time forms are received; please turn your form in as soon as possible. Again, we cannot take reservations without the form being submitted. Weekend staff cannot take/make reservations; please submit your form Monday-Friday, 9am – 5pm.

A representative from Marshy Point will contact you to tell you if your date(s) are available, and if so, what the next steps are.
