Squirrel Appreciation Day


Squirrel Appreciation Day is a day to enjoy watching the tree climbing and nut gathering squirrels in your neighborhood. By January they run low on food they squirreled away in the fall so treat them to some of the nuts you have left over from the holidays.

Squirrel Appreciation day was started by Christy Hargrove, a wildlife rehabilitator from Asheville, North Carolina, on January 21, 2001.
