Total distance

1.5 km


    Walk from one location to the next; most of the locations should be close and safe enough for traveling on foot. Take your time to see if there are any squirrels around!


You perch in an oak tree, nibbling an acorn. It's not as tasty as Clark University's french fries. A red squirrel scurries up. 
"Hello!" He says, "I'm Ephraim. Are you new here? I’ve never seen such a well-built female before."

Weren’t gray squirrels as common in Concord as they were in Worcester? Either Ephraim was a flirt, or he was calling you fat. 
"I'm Sylvie. I’m from Worcester," you answer. "Are any french fries nearby?" 

"Sure!" He hops off his branch. "Follow me!"
