Spring is for Baby Squirrels For What It's Earth

Right now, after all of the leaves have budded out and the flowers are starting to bloom more and more every day, we have another sign of spring – animal babies! As these babies are coming out and exploring their world, they may fall from their nest or get lost and we can play an important role in getting these wildlife babies back where they need to go. Learn how to identify baby squirrels by age to determine if you can help them by getting their mom to come and find them, or by placing them in their nest yourself, or if you need to take them to a rehabilitation center.
