It doesn't matter where you live, city or suburb, from the Midwest to the East Coast, Canada to California, whether squirrels live in your neighborhood or not, you are encouraged to become a squirrel monitor.

Become a Citizen Scientist.
Click here to record your squirrel observations.

What to do:  Take a look around your home, office, school, or anywhere you are and, whether you see squirrels or not, click on the green button above to submit your observations.  We want to know where squirrels are as well as where they aren’t.

How often:  You can submit as many observations from as many places as you like.  It’s most effective to submit at least one observation per site per season but the more observations the better.

Who:  Anyone of any age can participate.  Make it an office game or a classroom project, compare notes with friends in other states, get your family involved—everyone can observe nature.
