Our mascot, the opossum, is named "Puck" after a famous literary character.  Puck -  Also known as Robin Goodfellow, Puck is Oberon’s jester, a mischievous fairy who delights in playing pranks on mortals. Though A Midsummer Night’s Dream divides its action between several groups of characters, Puck is the closest thing the play has to a protagonist. His enchanting, mischievous spirit pervades the atmosphere, and his antics are responsible for many of the complications that propel the other main plots: he mistakes the young Athenians, applying the love potion to Lysander instead of Demetrius, thereby causing chaos within the group of young lovers; he also transforms Bottom’s head into that of an ass.

Membership is $10 (or whatever you can afford, more is always appreciated) per person per year (see the FAQ section for a membership form).  We have accomplished quite a bit in the last few years thanks to some super volunteers.  Check out the parks at 9th & Fern,  the end of Decatur St and overlooking the 4th ave roundabout next to the mural.
