Birthday Buddies
Hosted by Dickerson Park Zoo’s Conservation Education Department

Make your birthday party a “wild” experience. Schedule a private amphitheater program for your birthday party group. The program will feature at least two animals from our education program animals. Many of the animals in our collection are touchable. (Children age 5 and younger cannot touch reptiles.) Bio-facts will also be available for touch encounters.

“Birthday Buddies” opportunities are limited due to available personnel. Requests must be scheduled through the Dickerson Park Zoo Conservation Education Department. A minimum of two weeks advance notice is required for scheduling. The fee for this fun and educational 20- to 30-minute experience is $75. This offer is only available with the program voucher enclosed in the birthday party bag and must be paid in full at time of scheduling.

Funds raised through the “Birthday Buddies” program directly support the care of our conservation education program animals.

For more information, contact Pam Price, conservation education director, (417) 833-1570 or by email.
