Cal Bickle, Richland, a City of Kennewick employee noticed that Tri-City Parks had no squirrels. With permission of his supervisors, Bickle purchased 5 chipmunks and released them in Keewaydin Park on Sept. 30.

He is supplying them with feed and water through the winter. He plans to buy three tree squirrels and release them in the spring.
