Groundhog Day: Drumlin FarmJoin us at Drumlin Farm for our annual Groundhog Day event on Tuesday, February 2! Watch Ms. G, the Official State Groundhog of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as she wakes from her winter hibernation and decides whether or not spring will come early this year.

After Ms. G delivers her forecast at 10:00 am, you can enjoy winter activities like meeting our resident wildlife, exploring our wilderness trails, and learning how to identify animal tracks in the snow. Hot cocoa will be provided!

Featured Activities:

Special guests will include former WBZ-TV meteorologist Mish Michaels and the Wellesley school students who joined Mass Audubon in submitting the bill to the Massachusetts state legislature to declare Ms. G the Official State Groundhog. The bill was successfully enacted into law and signed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick on July 31, 2014.

Great Excuse to Get Outside
On a 30-something-degree February day with traces of snow still covering the ground, it can be easy to want to go somewhere indoors. This even at Drumlin Farm was the perfect excuse to get outside though. Going in and out of the barns and the Farm Center Building made it easy to enjoy the outdoors, warm up and then go out again. Also the event was well planned with a second showing of the groundhog so all children were able to see it, and an adorable groundhog kids craft. We've been to Drumlin Farm for a few events but this was my favorite yet.
