WEEKLY CONTEST: In order to keep this private 22 acre main island a natural and sustainable peaceful oasis, we do not intend to develop it or create a tourist destination...

We have been testing a model to offer boat treks to our other islands downstream named
"Hope" and "Hoppiness" in the near future.


Until mid-September we will continue to host weekly contests: Winners and up to 3 guests will be invited to go island hopping with us between the mainland & our partner islands.


All guests must be 14 or older to visit any of our islands -- but we host events for all ages at a family farm we call "Peacebunny Cottage."

Details on the current contest are below...

We're so excited that you found our site and are interested in the rabbits!   


Our partner educational nonprofit STEM bunnies
brings the rabbits to community events, schools, libraries, egg hunts.


There are lots of educational events open to the public, including
Bunny Boot Camp, Little Vet class and Bunny Garden (on Sunday nights starting back up in September).  We  are now piloting some party packages
for private special events to determine what we will host next spring.


Thank you for helping us keep the islands (including our sandbars) natural, pristine and undisturbed, by only visiting with our personal escort. 


As Guardians of the comfort rabbits who travel with us to the Peacebunny Islands to spend warm lazy summer days together, we're excited to share what we're learning.  But the site just isn't designed for lots of guests.

We worked with a host of experts while developing a plan to help ensure that the island is sustainable and good for the environment while also keeping the rabbits and our youth safe.  The site simply cannot sustain the amount of guests who wish to visit the main island.


We have several partner islands including Hope and Hoppiness, located just downstream, and we are currently testing a model for allowing guests to visit our rabbits there where it is more conducive for guests. 

Thanks for visiting our site and supporting this  youth-driven vision! 

The best way to stay in the loop on opportunities and events is to subscribe to this site and follow on social media.

Have a Hoppy Day!!

In 1969, the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio caught on fire because of the trash thrown in the river. This year, we celebrate 50 years of a clean river, thanks to the Clean Water act.  This Act also affects the Mississippi river and it allows the rabbits to be safe and healthy on their island.

I have been wanting a bunny since I was very young. I’ve written countless essays, poems, and begged enough to drive my parents crazy. The little things in these furry creatures are the things that make them so lovable. The soft fur, the cute way they chew, the energy in their springy hop. These magical creatures have perfected the love potion. They have begun to make their home along the Mississippi river at Peacebunny Island.   

Of all of the animals I enjoy, rabbits are at the top of my list. They have always been my favorite. I particularly enjoy sleeping with my stuffed rabbit, Caesar, because he is fluffy and the perfect stuffed animal. That’s why I want to come. Spending time with the peace bunnies will help to reconnect with myself. To break from my crazy life and play with some bunnies.
