Property and Species Information

*Squirrels require hanging a squirrel box, similar to a bird house but larger. These need mature, large trees to be able to support the weight on the box and its inhabitants. Squirrels can be territorial therefore we release the same sub-species already present in a location. **Year-round water source on property required.
