April Homeschool Wednesdays: Marsupials

April 17 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Close up of Marsi the opossum looking at the camera. The opossum is missing her left eye due to being hit by a car.

Come learn all about what it means to be a marsupial! Marsupial Madness is an interactive and educational program designed to introduce participants to the fascinating world of marsupials, with a special focus on opossums, North America’s only marsupial!

The program will begin with a brief lesson that covers essential marsupial facts, including how marsupials differ from placental mammals, the phenomenon of marsupial pouches, and the wide variety of marsupial species around the world.

Following the lesson, the program offers an opportunity to meet a real-life opossum, our very own animal ambassador: Marsi! Learn why we have Marsi (who is non-releasable), and how we can help other wildlife stay in the wild where they are happiest!

*Registration is required*
**Registration Will Open March 17th (one month before the event)**
