Love them or hate them, today is National Squirrel day!  Squirrel Appreciation Day recognizes a critter some consider a pest and others see as just fascinating. The creator, Christy Hargrove, is a wildlife rehabilitator in North Carolina and is affiliated with the Western North Carolina Nature Center.  According to Christy, “Celebration of the event itself is up to the individual or group — anything from putting out extra food for the squirrels to learning something new about the species.”  Over 200 species exist in the world. Some of the oldest squirrels categorized on the list include the nocturnal arrow flying squirrel and the Black Giant. Of all these species, they fall into three types; ground squirrels, tree squirrels and flying squirrels.  Flying squirrels don’t really “fly” they glide using flaps of skin between their legs.  Listen to the podcast here; https://theriver953.com/lonnies-fun-fact/
