Black Squirrel FestivalAaron probably would've wanted to either bring a BB gun OR transport the entire squirrel population of our neighborhood!

Yes, those Squirrels are Black!
They were brought from Canada by Larry Woodell in the early 1950's. Mr Woodell released about a dozen pairs on campus, while serving as Superintendent of Maintenance for Kent State University. These unique tree climbers are honored every September at a PUBLIC EVENT at KSC Risman Plaza.
