Raritan Headwaters offers fun, nature-themed birthday party programs for children between the ages of 3 and 14!  Birthday parties take place at Fairview Farm Wildlife Preserve, where we have a Nature Classroom, trails to explore and plenty of open space to enjoy the outdoors!   By working with RHA staff to design a birthday program based on your child’s interests and birthday wishes, you can be sure that your youngster and his/her friends will enjoy a fun, educational time of exploration, games, crafts and other activities!

RHA will provide:

  • Use of our Nature Classroom for the party space, or an outdoor area with tables and chairs for all party guests
  • Trash bags and clean up supplies (brooms, dust pans, etc.)
  • Use of our office refrigerator, freezer, sink and microwave

Your reservation includes:

  • Plenty of set-up time before your party begins
  • Two hours of party time: One hour of activities including exploration time and crafts led by a naturalist, and one hour of general play time (including refreshments and gift-opening)
  • One hour to clean up at the end of the party (all garbage must be placed in the dumpsters at the top of RHA’s

You will provide:

  • Birthday cake and refreshments
  • Decorations if desired. All decorations MUST be secured so as not to blow away and litter the surrounding habitat areas
  • Assistance managing children during the RHA-led portion of the program
  • Supervision of your child and guests


$300 Members, $350 Non-Members (includes a family membership).  Party size is limited to 20 children including siblings.  Smaller party sizes are encouraged, as the party space is small and naturalist availability is limited!  Full payment must be received to hold your reservation.  Refunds are available if cancellation is made at least 24 hours in advance.  Membership is considered a donation and is not refundable.

We look forward to sharing this special day with you and your child!
