Outdoor Animal Encounter and Nature Exploration
Schedule a Briar Bush Educator for a Live Animal Encounter and Nature Exploration at our location or yours! Our skilled naturalists will present two to four live animals to your group, then interpret our forest ecosystem or the natural area around your home and conduct relevant activities. Animal Guests may include a Red-Tailed Hawk, Eastern Screech Owl, Striped Skunk, and/or Virginia Opossum during the winter months.
Outdoor Lenape Living Program
Participants explore the history of the native people who lived here in Pennsylvania. Students interact with authentic and re-created props and tools, learn traditional methods of hunting and gathering, play Native American games, meet a live animal, and explore the natural area around your home or school (45-minute option).
Regular Birthday Party Program
Program options may change depending on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Birthday parties begin with an hour-long program with a BBNC educator. All new themes, including Frogs and Turtles, Cave Exploration, and many more, include games, live animal encounters, and outside time.
Afterward, enjoy the natural beauty of our sanctuary for another hour in your private party area. Our spacious covered porch easily accommodates large groups during nice weather. In case of inclimate weather, the "Treetops" provides a large yet cozy indoor space where the fun never stops.
We can also bring the animals to you! Add a live animal encounter to a party at your home or other location (depending on rules of location).
