Red Squirrels have a National Red Squirrel week but the Glens Red Squirrel Group think a week is too short to tell the full story of their ‘Reds’ and have decided to make a month of it with ‘Squirreltober’.
They want everyone to join the GRSG for a whole month, to find out more about Red Squirrels in the Glens and have organised walks, talks, and storytelling and will be opening a Hide at set times.
