Squirrel Facts: Squirrel Awareness Month

Next month, October, is Squirrel Awareness Month. Seriously, this is a real observation, and you can read about it here.

So be thinking of what you can do for the squirrels in your area. A few ideas off the top of my head:

  • You can get squirrel feeders and treats for your yard at any home improvement store (Lowe's, etc.), many WalMarts, and many places online.
  • If you can afford it, donate to nonprofit organizations that work to preserve wildlife habitats, such as the World Wildlife Fund, or the Sierra Club. These are only two of many, and since squirrels of all kinds are part of complex ecosystems, anything you do to help wildlife helps squirrels.
  • Encourage your city or town to set aside land for parks and natural areas, and then use those parks. Enjoy natural spaces and encourage others to do so.
