As city wildlife goes, squirrels are generally welcome and do well in the urban landscape. The funny thing is, they didn’t originally choose to be here.
They were taken from forests to Central Park in NYC in the 1870s, as well as other cities like Boston and Washington, DC, to revitalize the concrete jungle. Led by founding landscape architect and conservationist Frederick Law Olmsted, he introduced them to live among us in an effort improve mental health and compassion towards animals.

The word “squirrel” traces back through Middle English, French, Latin, and originally Greek, meaning “shadow-tail.”
