Barely a mammal, sometimes creepy, always helpful!

“Beady eyes”, sharped-toothed snouts, and long hairless tails… many folks have no love for the opossum. Come join us and learn why you might appreciate them more than you’d think…

- You heard us right, opossums are actually oawesome!

- From the pests they eat, to how they care for their young, to their overly dramatic acting, opossums might earn your respect and maybe even your admiration surprisingly quickly!

- Hear the real truth behind these strange marsupials, where they fit into the ecosystem of the Pineywoods, and why they don’t deserve the bad rap they get. Even the creepiest critters can be beautiful in how perfectly they fit into our forest!

Meet at the Rice Family Log Home

Participants should bring water, appropriate clothing and footwear for the outdoors, and an open mind!

*Attendance to this event is open to the public and free AFTER regular day use or camping fees.
