  • 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!"
