Get Squirrely

SquirrelWe have some pretty amazing animals here at the Zoo that can be found around the world. However, you may see some great native Wisconsin animals running around outside the exhibits as well! The Zoo is a great place for squirrels to live, because there are plenty of trees to climb and nuts like acorns to find. Squirrels like to hide their nuts to prepare for cold weather. Can you hide some items around your house or outside in your yard like a squirrel, and see if someone else can find them?

Remember: When squirrels hide their nuts, some get left behind and sprout into new trees. They have an important job helping new trees to grow! However, because we aren’t squirrels, let’s make sure we find and pick up everything we hide.
