Gallery Exhibits at Green Briar

 

THORNTON W. BURGESS: HIS TIMES, LIFE AND WORK

The Thornton W. Burgess Gallery at the Green Briar Nature Center exhibits memorabilia from the life and times of the famed children’s author, naturalist and Sandwich native {1874-1965].  Over 170 books and 15,000 stories by Burgess chronicle the tales of Peter Rabbit and his animal friends including Jimmy Skunk, Grandfather Frog, Johnny Chuck, Sammy Jay, Reddy Fox, Hooty Owl and many others.  These stories still teach lessons of conservation and love of wildlife to generations of young people.  Parts of this extensive exhibit will be permanent and other parts will change on an annual basis.  This exhibition is funded in part by a grant from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod.
