Did you know that Thomas Edison and his family had many strange and unusual pets when they lived in Southwest Florida?
They kept alligators, monkeys, peacocks and even a pet pelican named Jerry. Jerry was a tricky bird who liked to play hide and seek, and he has become the inspiration for a new scavenger hunt for families now available at the Edison and Ford Winter Estates.
The goal of the scavenger hunt is to find Jerry in eight different places, including the Edison caretaker’s house, the Moonlight Garden, main house, Thomas and Mina’s master bedroom, guest house, the Ford car exhibit, the secretary’s bedroom in the Ford house, and in the Ford house dining room. Children will receive a prize when they find all eight hidden pelicans.
