The famous author Thorton Burgess grew up in Sandwich and wrote over 170 books and 15,000 stories about Peter Rabbit and his animal friends. As a child, he used to go for walks in what is now the conservation area next to the Nature Center. The Nature Center offers interpretive nature trails and a special wild flower garden. Leashed dogs are allowed on the nature trails and throughout the trails in the flower garden. Pets are not allowed inside the buildings. The adjacent 166 acre Briar Patch Conservation Area also allows dogs on their trails. Pets must be on leash, except during the months of September through March when dogs are allowed off-leash, but must be under voice control. The conservation area is the home of Peter Rabbit and other Burgess animal characters. The Nature Center offers trail guides for the conservation area. Green Briar is located off Route 6A.
