“A Squirrel’s Guide to Success” Film Showing

Thursday, October 10, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Discover the extraordinary abilities of ordinary squirrels in this charming PBS “Nature” documentary — from the brainy fox squirrel who can remember the location of 9,000 nuts to the acrobatic gray squirrel whose tree-top leaps are the basis for new designs in robotics. Following the film, Harris Center naturalist and mammal enthusiast Susie Spikol will be on hand for questions, along with some squirrelly selections from the Harris Center’s natural history collection. Suggested donation: $5.

Presented by: Monadnock Conservancy, Harris Center for Conservation Education, and Keene State College Film Society.
Location: Putnam Arts Lecture Hall theater, Redfern Arts Center, Keene State College, Keene, N.H.
