Here is an animal we tend not to think a lot about until they run out in front of our cars causing us to slam on the brakes. Yes, they are a rodent but they are a cute rodent so I don’t think that counts. We should show our appreciation for them today, in the middle of winter, because it’s hard for them to find food…. we can provide that and make them happy. Today was created by Christy Hargrove in 2001 as a part of the Western North Carolina Nature Center.
How to celebrate – Let a squirrel entertain you today. Leave some food out for the squirrels. Enjoy nature, even if it is covered in snow.
