Celebrate your birthday at Habitat!

Habitat Education Center in Belmont offers fun, nature-inspired indoor and outdoor birthday parties from September to May for children turning 6 to 10 years old.

Our experienced staff will lead the children in a 90-minute program, which always includes some time outside. After some exploring, your guests will return to the library where you may serve cake and refreshments.


Parties can take place September–May on:

  • Weekday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30 pm ($225)
  • Weekends from 10:00 am to noon or 2:00 to 4:00 pm ($275)

Maximum of 15 children per party. We also ask that two adult chaperones attend as well.

No piñatas, please.


We offer a variety of nature-based themes to make your party unique! Choose a seasonal theme or pick one of our anytime ideas!


  • The Meadow (September to October): Discover the meadow with sweep nets to find insects and their cousins.
