Welcome to Nature Walks with Henry Horn!
Ecology professor Henry Horn has been exploring Princeton University’s campus for the past 53 years—and paying close attention to the plants and animals he meets. This video series will share Henry’s unique knowledge of Princeton’s natural history, as well as give viewers the information they need to go out and experience campus ecology themselves.
Episode 4: Black Squirrels
The black squirrel is one of Princeton’s unofficial mascots, in large part because so many of them are seen on campus. Henry dispels some common myths about black squirrels, and explains the leading theory for why the university is graced by their notable presence.
