LYME — On Wednesday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m., learn all about the opossums, with Pamela and William Lefferts, wildlife rehabilitators of Ferncroft Wildlife Rescue. A program about these helpful wildlife friends will be presented by the Lefferts at Lyme Public Hall, 249 Hamburg Rd, Lyme CT.

They will present a slide show, which explains wildlife rehabilitation and the role of rehabbers, with a focus on opossums. At the end of the show, there will be a “meet and greet ” with the stars of the show, live opossum educational ambassadors.
