How To Feed Chipmunks Out Of The Palm Of Your Hand



I'll always have fond childhood memories of going grocery shopping with our Mom to prepare for our next family camping adventure. Summertime was always so exciting; Tiny boxes of sugar cereals that were never on the menu at home found their way into our shopping cart and the family wasn’t officially ready to go anywhere until we had a good supply of in-shell peanuts (unsalted) for our chipmunk friends.

Since then, I've learned more about the importance of NOT feeding wildlife but thought I'd still share the best/healthiest options here in the hopes of suggesting less harmful options. 


In Canada:

1. Unsalted Sunflower Seeds

2. Strawberries (local, washed, organic if possible)

3. Acorns, Oak Nuts and Hickories (actual natural diet)


And further South in year round warm climates:

1. Pecans (unsalted)

2. Peanuts (unsalted)


So there you have it! Some tips on feeding Chipmunks. Happy camping this summer everyone and remember to always respect our woodland friends!
