The Wild Bunch Squirrels may be cute, but they are also an important link to the park’s other wildlife. Many large animals’ survival depends on the smallest wildlife in Rocky Mountain National Park. Join park ranger Sue Spearing to meet Rocky’s little wildlife and find out how they contribute to the park. These evening programs will be held at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center in Rocky Mountain National Park. They are free and open to the public. For more information about Rocky Mountain National Park, please call the park’s information office at (970) 586-1206.
