Live Reptile Birthday Parties at Marin Treks

Have you been to the Marin Treks Natural History Museum yet? It's a great place to take the kids to learn about nature and the environment and to have some hands-on fun with their collection of live animals. Did you know they also offer awesome birthday parties, too?

Let Marin Treks make your child's next birthday party a day to remember! You can hold your party at their museum in Novato, or outdoors in your backyard or in a local park. Marin Treks' exciting hands-on birthday adventures allow the birthday girl or boy and their guests to hold and learn fun facts about the museum's amazing collection of live reptiles. Discuss where they live, what they eat, how they avoid predators, and a whole lot more. The children are encouraged to ask as many questions as they can and then try to answer their own questions by carefully observing the animals, just like real scientists.

Their basic two-hour party for kids ages 6 to 12 costs $275 for the birthday child and up to 12 guests on Fridays and Saturdays, and $325 on Sundays. Each additional guest costs $12.50 for a maximum of 16. Travel parties to a home or local park are the same price, plus $1 per mile for travel outside of Novato.

Get $50 off a party booked between now and Labor Day (Monday, September 4, 2017) with promo code SUMMERBD2017. Parties can be scheduled for any time, but must be booked by September 4.

Parties include 10 minutes for set-up, a 60 minute animal presentation by Marin Treks reptile expert Audrey Van Hoven (AKA Mrs. V), 40 minutes for cake and presents, and 10 minutes for clean-up. Gift bags for the guests are available upon request for an additional charge. Other party options are also available, including a preschool party for 4- and 5-year-olds that includes an age-appropriate animal encounter. Birthday party times are Fridays from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, Saturdays from 10 am to noon, 12:30 to 3 pm, and 3:30 to 5:30 pm.
