Storms Blow Baby Squirrels From Nests
Look who is visiting in the office today (8/11/14)! This baby squirrel is being hand fed and cared for by AAS Ed Director, Melanie Furr. He fell out of the nest over the weekend and is on his way to AWARE the wild animal rescue organization.
Melanie says "The second wave of baby squirrels are being born in August and September, if you find one, try to return it to it's nest or if it is too high, make a small nest and hang it as high as possible".
Eagle Scout Gifts Preserve
Hughes Moffett has just completed his Eagle Scout Project at the Preserve and we are the proud recipients of a new circular bench and picnic table! The bench and table are made out of beautiful cedar wood and will be real amenities for visitors.
Many thanks to Hughes for this wonderful gift and also a financial contribution.
