Come celebrate SPIKE’S 17th BIRTHDAY and receive our new TORTOISE CONSERVATION fun patch!  Our African-Spurred Tortoise, is a giant version of his cousin the Texas Tortoise; friendly and fun, he’s also a huge part of our environmental education programs. In addition, Daisies earn Between Earth and Sky; Brownies earn Pets and Making Games; Juniors earn Animal Habitats and Playing the Past; Cadettes earn Animal Helper and Field Day; Seniors earn Voice for Animals and Gaming Visionary; Ambassadors earn Eco Advocate. 

This festive event includes a special fruitcake, singing, arts & crafts, “Beauty and the Beast” photos with Spike, and what may be the world’s slowest parade. Please bring an apple, long leaf lettuce, or strawberries for our scaled herbivore. 

$25 pp includes your badge, supplies, instructional programs and party with Spike and the staff of the National Butterfly Center from 9 AM – 12 PM, plus all-day park admission. There is no charge for 2 leaders/troop; parents and siblings pay applicable park admission, only.  All participants are invited to pack a lunch and picnic under the palapa. Space is limited. Please register online, at least two weeks before the event. For more information call 956.583.5400.
