Join experts from NHMU to learn about and look for local squirrels, and find out how you can inform scientific research by looking for and recording your squirrel observations in Utah! 
 
The Museum's curator of vertebrates, Dr. Eric Rickart, will be making short presentations on the hour:
  • 10:00 a.m.
  • 11:00 a.m.
  • 12:00 p.m.
This is an informal, family-friendly, outdoor event. Join us whenever you are able, and come prepared to explore outside!

This Citizen Science data gathering event will be held before Squirrel Fest starts on Dec. 6th. Squirrel Fest is a weeklong Citizen Science initiative during which NHMU invites the public to contribute their observations of Utah's squirrels to help us better understand their distribution throughout the state.
