Join us the first Wednesday of every month for science, technology, engineering and math!
Let's let our squirrel friends teach us about animal habitats!
Squirrels are perhaps most well known for “squirreling-away,” that is, gathering and storing, nuts to eat later. So, when we see busy squirrels in the fall, we tend to associate their heightened activity with gathering a food supply for the winter. However, squirrels have a lesser-known fall project that is more noticeable once the trees have lost their leaves. Like all animals, squirrels need food, water, and shelter to survive in a habitat, but we learn through this lesson that the squirrel, our animal neighbor, is especially resourceful.
