Defenders of Wildlife


Sign up for our Carolina northern flying squirrel Wildlife Workshop & Walkabout!

Our second event in our Wildlife Workshops & Walkabouts series celebrates the Carolina northern flying squirrels of North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia!

Join Defenders and special guest presenter U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service biologist Sue Cameron on Thursday, July 18th to learn about the endangered Carolina northern flying squirrel. Ms. Cameron coordinates efforts to recover the squirrel and you’ll learn what makes it special and why it is endangered, as well as effective strategies aimed at helping it recover. You’ll also hear from Anna Norton live and on location at Southern Highlands Reserve– about the unique role the Reserve is playing in the squirrel’s recovery.

Then, join us on Saturday, July 20th for a walkabout along Flat Laurel Creek Trail, Pisgah National Forest, NC. We’ll enjoy this cool, high elevation spruce-fir forest – an endangered ecosystem in our region and home to several other rare species – while we explore what makes this squirrel habitat unique and examine previously installed nest boxes in the area.
