If you’ve spent any time in a New York City park, chances are you have spotted an eastern gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis). These tree-dwelling animals have become something of an unofficial mascot for the city’s parks by nature of their visibility. They can often be seen leaping through wooded areas, chasing other squirrels around tree trunks, or perched on park benches nibbling on nuts and seeds.

Join the Urban Park Rangers and discover some fun and interesting facts of this familiar fixture in our parks.
