We are jumping with joy to learn there are flying squirrels at Minute Man National Historical Park! We’ve never actually seen one – probably because they are nocturnal animals and are active at night. According to a 2007 National Park Service report, scientists found evidence of both Northern and Southern flying squirrels in Minute Man National Historical Park. The squirrels are found in conifer and mixed deciduous-conifer forests of the park, not near the Minute Man statue as the picture above would lead you to believe.
