The Fearsome Foursome–Raccoons, Opossums, Skunks and Porcupines–are each unique and fascinating and wander among Nature with courage and tenacity. Often overlooked and misunderstood, these animals have spectacular characteristics and adaptations for life in their environments. Come join Master Wildlife Conservationist, Ginny Apple, to learn about these captivating critters. Registration is not necessary for this program.
