!!! seems it only displays well the 2nd time? ugh.
Meet Lavender the opossum and learn why she lives in a house. Lavender wrote a book about it. Lavender’s human friend will read the book out loud and then the children will get to meet a live opossum.
Learn all about our helpful wildlife friends, the opossums, with Pamela and William Lefferts, wildlife rehabilitators with Ferncroft Wildlife Rescue.
Pamela A. Lefferts is a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator in CT. Retired after many years in the field of education, Pam is the “hands-on” partner and does the critical medical care of the animals, preparing them for release. William H. Lefferts is a licensed CT Rehabilitator and Transporter.  Bill retired after teaching secondary school moderate to severe special needs children for over 40 years.  Bill helps with socialization and is instrumental in releases.
Always lovers of animals, the Lefferts operated a hobby farm for many years prior to retirement. In 2016 they began the process of becoming Wildlife rehabilitators and in early 2017 they opened Ferncroft Wildlife Rescue.  They believe it is the perfect volunteer opportunity for retirees and love to share their passion and knowledge of how and what “rehabbing” entails. Specializing in opossum, the Lefferts especially enjoy sharing knowledge about these misunderstood gentle creatures.
