How well do you know your neighbors? If you live in Austin, you might have some furry ones – raccoons and foxes. They have adapted so well to city life, they are now more common in cities than in the country. Raccoons are closely related to the bear family, and are smart, funny, and incredibly talented at getting into things. Foxes have been part of our story telling for centuries, and are also bright and full of character. Make a mask of felt with us while learning more about these fabulous creatures.
