Special Program

GREEN MEADOW FOREST

Visit the storybook world of Peter Rabbit, Grandfather Frog, Reddy Fox, Mrs. Quack, Billy Mink and the many other characters that internationally known children’s author, Thornton W. Burgess, created at the turn of the 20th century. You can play with Mr. and Mrs. Peter in their Rabbit Hollow, fish with Billy, try Plinko with Happy Jack Squirrel and enjoy other activities like play the Tail game with Peter and hunt for the rainbow bug. The Green Meadow Forest experience resurrects the Thornton W. Burgess legacy as an environmentalist, conservationist and author of over 170 children’s books and dozens of special animal characters. His characters come to life through the illustrations of renowned illustrator, Harrison Cady. We welcome a new generation of kids and families to enjoy this special place. It is especially meaningful to those that read the Burgess stories when they were growing up. Visitors will become familiar with the animals native to the area, their habitat and how they were portrayed in Burgess’s stories.

THE MENAGERIE

Our live animal display highlights our bunnies, and we also have environmentally accurate habitats for some of the smaller woodland creatures. Enjoy a closer look at some of the animals that inhabit Cape Cod and appear in a number of Burgess stories. For added fun, our Treetop Shop has a selection of Burgess books, character puppets and tools for the nature lover explorer.
