Bison Pumps at Home in Hidden Hollow

“Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn.”

Benjamin Franklin

The secret is out; children love hand pumps. Whether for a cool drink of water, the main ingredient in building a sand castle, or watering gardens; there is magic in pumping the handle and experiencing the flow of water.

Bison Pumps are being requested by schools and learning centers, directors of natural playgrounds, and parks and recreation administrators around the world. People want a Bison for three reasons:

  • Superior quality and reliability
  • Beauty, functionality and elegance
  • Our ability to design and custom build a Bison Pump for any application

Hidden Hollow is a place for families to play in and explore the natural world. Hidden Hollow features a wide range of activity areas in which families can enjoy the outdoors together. Nestled in a two-acre dry kettle hole, its unique topography offers a stimulating and beautiful outdoor setting for discovery and learning.

Hidden Hollow is one of New England’s first certified Nature Explore Classrooms, a joint program of National Arbor Day Foundation and Dimensions Educational Research Foundation. This national initiative was developed to advance the understanding and appreciation of the natural world and to provide children with meaningful and positive experiences with nature.

Children can climb stepping stumps, navigate log balance beams, construct forts, create nature-inspired art, build with blocks, dig in sand, experiment with water, make music, engage in sensory investigation with plants, and more.
