How do you have a party and get everyone to attend? Invite an opossum.
Educator Peg Beute brought out Alice the Ijams education 'possum last Saturday at 2 o'clock and before you could say "Who's on first?" she had a good size party.
Every Saturday at 2 and 3:30 p.m. there are free animal shows at the Visitor Center, and if you are very, very lucky, it might even be Alice on first!
Or it could be that nature boy with da bird.
