4 Ways to Celebrate Squirrel Appreciation Day


Squirrel Appreciation Day

How should you celebrate this most momentous of national holidays? Here are some ideas to get you started.

1. Play a game of eye spy squirrels. You get a point for every squirrel you spot… the game could go on forever, especially if the squirrels in your neighborhood look pretty much the same.

2. Hang squirrel feeders. A few years ago, we stopped feeding the birds because the squirrels were always eating the food. So then we decided just to feed the squirrels instead and quickly found that the birds like squirrel food too. Everyone was happy!

3. Build a squirrel obstacle course.

4. Take photos of the squirrels in your neighborhood and share them with the National Wildlife Federation’s Wildlife Watch.

Whatever you choose to do, have a great time with your squirrel friends today!

  8. What is it that the squirrel community have done that we need to appreciate them? Is it because they are sweet and furry? Why not shift our focus to butterflies?


    • Hi Shakti! I imagine being sweet and furry has a lot to do with our fascination with them. I agree with you, humans so rarely find insects to be cute. It’s a shame. We should all celebrate Butterfly Education and Awareness Day on Saturday, June 7. My calendar’s marked. πŸ™‚
