Houston Arboretum – The Secret Life of Squirrels
August 13, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
$20 member / $35 nonmember (per person)
Instructor: Kelsey Low
Ages 12 and up
Squirrels are so common that we take them for granted, but they really live fascinating lives. For example, did you know that Eastern Gray Squirrels are one of the few animal species known to lie to deceive others, tree squirrels have built-in sunglasses, and flying squirrels are vicious predators? These ubiquitous and adaptable creatures aren’t just backyard nuisances – they play essential roles in our ecosystem. We will focus our three Houston species: Eastern Gray, Fox, and Southern Flying.
