“Squirrels are creatures that hide under decks and crawl into holes underground. Squirrels like to live in the country. If you live in town, you can put nuts in a trap, and when the squirrel gets trapped you can take it to the country. And it will have a happy life.”
Dad says: I am happy to see that Annie takes such a liking to nature and wildlife. I have always tried to instill those values in here since she was very little. We took trips to Carlsbad Caverns, Glacier National Park and the Oregon Coast. She has also had the guidance of some wonderful friends like Roger and Ellena Knobel. They have taught her about nature and gardening. They also give her the gift of nature magazines for kids.
