Meet Sir Walter Wally the groundhog and get his prognostication for the next six weeks, translated by our very own “Groundhog Whisperer”, Mayor McFarlane!

Ever wondered how Groundhog Day came to be? You’ll learn about the history of Groundhog Day, and get to meet one of the original animals that was used to predict an early (or late) Spring.

You’ll also learn how snakes and arthropods survive the winter, and how to identify the tell-tale signs of Spring.
