Join us on Saturday, May 19th as we transform the Visitor Center into a beach lover's paradise. A sandy beach is created at the Visitor's Center, and the children absolutely love playing with the sand toys provided for them.

Kiddie pools, giant inflatables, beach balls, snowballs, water slides, and sprinklers make it a fun event for children of all ages. 

Adults enjoy bidding on the silent auction items unique to Global Wildlife, including a fishing trip in our catfish pond and antlers naturally shed from our Pere David deer.  

At the Beach Party everyone will enjoy the food, great music, and festive games. Join as a member today and have a great time with us at the Beach Party!
