Opie's World


Opie is a cartoon opossum. His mission is to get adults – parents, grandparents and caregivers – to take children out to natural areas and help children develop that sense of wonder about the natural world that is so important in their development. Once a child experiences that sense of wonder, they will begin to care about the world around them.
