visit the green meadow forest at thornton burgess photoVisit 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.

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. You can play with Mr. and Mrs. Peter Rabbit in their Rabbit Hollow, fish with Billy Mink, try Plinko with Happy Jack Squirrel and enjoy other activities during your visit.

Visitors will become familiar with the animals native to the area, their habitat and how they were portrayed in Burgess’s stories.

We welcome a new generation of kids and families to enjoy this special place. Although it is especially meaningful to those that read the Burgess stories when they were growing up, the stories are relevant today.
