Join Environmental Educator Pam Golben to learn about the Opossum through an illustrated slide show presentation and intriguing artifacts.

“The Opossum is the record holder for the most teeth of any North American mammal – 50!” said Ms. Golben. “Opossum babies stay in mother’s pouch for 2 months.”

Because this program takes place at the Wildlife Education Center, which houses all the museum’s resident animals, participants will be able to observe the museum opossum’s home and watch it enjoy a snack. Visitors can also make a ‘possum pouch to take home.
