Welcome to the Evergreen Wood. We are so glad you stopped by and hope to make your visit both informative and interesting. We take
great pride in our hospitality and are delighted when we can give a tour. I, Winslow the owl will tell you a little about the
Evergreen Wood before turning you over to Kopan . He will be your tour guide.
Kopan is our most energenic and congenial wood fairy.
Our mission is to heighten your curosity, help you to look beyond what you think you see and of course, entertain.
When visiting some of our charming little habitats like "Ladybug Junction, " or Shaddy Glen where
"Forest Sweet Shoppe," is located, please take a few moments to meet the Ladybug Junction's
Miss Polly Ladybug. They are
extremely hospitable and will give you lots of information about this special place. After that, you might even want to
taste some of the delicious baked goodies by
Miss Hunny Hedgehog. She owns the "Forest Sweet Shoppe"
When you travel a little further down the twisted footpath to the old mill pond, chances are you will encounter Ms. Emily
Duck teaching her ducklings how to swim. She is a little giddy but very nice and will welcome you graciously. However, by
then you will have most likely already met
Spike the turtle and
Kanatipillar the caterpillar chatting with
Hodges the Hedgehog, Hunny's twin brother and
Montebello the mushroom. Don't be surprised if they invite you to join them at
Katrinka the frog's house to meet
Sally Sunflower and her son Haboo and have a cup of tea together.
Before departing though, you must take a quick
peek at my unique library. It's located very high up in the tallest of trees in the Evergreen Wood. I can assure you there is
nothing quite like it anywhere in the forest.
