Sundays at 2: Dell Cullum’s “Encounters with Opossums & Raccoons” at the Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center
August 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Dell Cullum – Encounters with Opossums and Raccoons. 2:00PM. Dell Cullum is the owner of Hampton Wildlife Removal & Rescue in East Hampton. 100% humane, no kill trapping. He’s also a wildlife rehabilitator, educator, filmmaker & photographer, creator and host of Imagination Nature TV which is in its fifth year on LTV. Dell visits several schools each year to talk about our beautiful wildlife and the importance of compassion and learning to live with our wildlife neighbors, rather than consider them a nuisance and seek ways of eliminating them from our lives. He also speaks to adult groups and organizations, including this past 2019 Long Island Natural History Conference at Brookhaven. Dell is the author of “Eden of East Hampton” a half historical reference / half photo gallery, making up the only book written about East Hampton Village’s treasure, and sanctuary to some amazing wildlife. He also is the author of the ongoing children’s series, “The Wild Adventures of Scurry the Squirrel”. Dell will be discussing Opossums and Raccoons, two of the east end’s most common nocturnal critters, who due to our unique environment have found paradise. He’ll cover what makes these animals so unique, the benefits they offer to our environment and to ourselves, and how to live with these critters whose habitats are ever shrinking. The presentation includes a slideshow with both original stills and short video clips. The Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center is at 1061 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike and is handicap accessible. All Sundays at Two events are free and open to the public. Refreshments are served.
