Butterfly Package

NEW! Add on a Butterfly Release

Give your party wings!  Add on a Butterfly Release Package and your birthday child will get to release monarch butterflies right from the stage at the Zoo.  Your party guests and Zoo visitors will watch as your child helps start a monarch on their journey to Mexico, and your little conservationist will be helping monarchs in their natural habitat.  Your child’s name will even appear on the big screen at the stage to let everyone know it is their special day.  A portion of the proceeds will go to expanding butterfly habitat and your child will receive a certificate to thank them for helping these important pollinators.

Cost: $89 (Only available July 1  through September 15)

Enrichment Package

NEW! Add on an Animal Enrichment Experience

When you add on this package, the birthday child and guests will get to help create a an exciting enrichment for the animal you select. As a group, the party will create the enrichment, walk to the habitat of the animal and learn about that animal, its environmental connections, conservation stories and so much more. Then, watch as the animal dives into the enrichment (hopefully…all animals are given plenty of freedom to make their own choices!).

Enrichment Options:

  • Tigers

  • Lemurs and animals in the South America habitat

  • Please call (585) 336-7213 no later than two weeks before the date of the party to request your Enrichment Package. The Birthday Party Coordinator will seek approvals from Animal Care staff to ensure the animal is willing and able to receive enrichment on your party date. We will work as hard as we can to satisfy your request.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Polar Bears International, an organization that helps protect polar bears in their natural range!

Cost: $89
