Glide Over for a Cozy Flying Squirrel Campfire

SquirrelA winter’s evening is the best time to learn about fairy gliders, better known as flying squirrels.

Active throughout the winter, the nocturnal cousin of the grey squirrel, raids bird feeders and can be attracted to your backyard with roosting boxes. Enjoy trying to spot these charming woodland creatures before a campfire on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2021 from either 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. or 7 to 8 p.m.

Toast marshmallows as you discover how these little squirrels soar between treetops. The campfire is for ages 4 years to adult. The fee is $7 per person. Children must be accompanied by an adult registered in the campfire. The entire program is outdoors.
