"The Virginia Opossum"
Speaker: Barbara Hawes, Wildlife Rehabilitator

Program Location: Old Lyme Town Hall
52 Lyme St., Old Lyme

The opossum is often maligned and labeled "vicious" or "a nuisance." The exact opposite is true. There are a lot of other myths to bust about this misunderstood marsupial. There will be answers to typical questions: Do they "play possum"? Are they related to rats? Do they hang by their tail? And there will be plenty of facts revealed that most people do not know.

Barbara Hawes has been a licensed wildlife rehabilitator with the State of Connecticut, DEEP for 20 years. She is also a Potapaug Audubon board member.
