All About Possums!

Join us on Saturday, June 9th at 11am for a celebration of the humble possum!

Did you know:

Due to an opossum's low body temperature and successful immune system, it's very rare for one to carry rabies.

In northern regions, opossums often have abnormally short tails - the ends are lost due to frostbite.

The Virginia opossum has more teeth than any other North American Mammal - 50, to be exact.


On June 9th, join us to: 

  • Learn about possums with local naturalist & educator Howard Romack!

  • Listen as author and illustrator Anne Hunter reads her new book, Possum and the Summer Storm!
  • Create your own possum mask to wear!
