Squirrels of the Pacific Northwest

The Pacific Northwest is home to one of the most diverse collections of squirrel species anywhere in the world, from the tall trees of the coastal rainforest to the alpine tundra of the high Cascades to the deserts of the Columbia Basin. Squirrels are one of the most watchable types of wildlife in our region and the specific adaptations and behavior of our tree squirrels, ground squirrels, flying squirrels, marmots, and chipmunks provide a window into one of the most successful families of rodents in the world. Join David Moskowitz, author and photographer of Wildlife of the Pacific Northwest for an evening of engaging photography, fun stories from the field, and more information than you ever imaged about these furry and noisy neighbors.
