Squirrel Survey Scavenger Hunt
Look for squirrels in your own backyard!
Help NHMLAC scientists look for squirrels by contributing to the Southern California Squirrel Survey! The Southern California Squirrel Survey is a community science research program to catalog the occurrence of squirrels in the greater Southern California region.
Download the PDF guide to learn about these critters and help in your search! Then, submit photos and supporting data (date, time, address/locality, and observational notes) by e-mail; upload to the project page; or use the iNaturalist app (Android and iOS).
As we all navigate these times of uncertainty and social distance, you can still help our scientists — science doesn't stop!
Remember to keep yourself and wildlife safe. Do not disturb wildlife and follow your local city and county government directives regarding COVID-19 and social distancing measures.
