There is so much to see and do. . . .


The Thornton W. Burgess Society is a non-profit educational organization dedicated "to inspire reverence for wildlife and concern for the natural environment" in the tradition of author and naturalist Thornton Waldo Burgess.

The Society serves its members through monthly updates, the Robert Swain Library; and classes and workshops for children, adults and families.

Members receive discounts for gift shop purchases and most classes. Members also have the satisfaction of knowing they are supporting the cause of conservation and preservation of our natural and historical heritage.

At the Green Briar Nature Center and Jam Kitchen you can relax in our award winning wildflower garden, say hello to the animals in the Education Building, breathe in the wonderful aromas in our Jam Kitchen and join in some of our great classes.

At the East Sandwich Game Farm you can walk through miles of trails where you will see the natural beauty of Cape Cod's environment.
