Squirrel Appreciation Day

21st January 2019

Event Overview

Today is the day to consider and appreciate squirrels!  In the winter squirrels are far less active however, unlike many other mammals, these bushy tailed creatures don’t actually hibernate.  Instead they interrupt periods of sleep to retrieve food they have hidden undeground during the warner months.  

You can celebrate Squirrel Appreciation Day by leaving them some extra food like sunflower seeds, nuts or fruit. Why not have a look at all our nature based resources for inspiration?
