Now that winter is here, we are in full bird feeding mode. And, along with the birds come their friends the squirrels. Instead of trying to chase these critters away, why not help scientists better understand them. Whether you live in a city, the suburbs or a small town, squirrels are part of our landscape.
You and your kids can help researchers understand squirrel ecology by submitting your observations of the animals to the PROJECT SQUIRREL site. http://www.projectsquirrel.org
