Look For The Groundhog at Ellanor C. Lawrence Park
Falling midway between winter solstice and the spring equinox, Groundhog Day is celebrated when celebrity groundhog Punxsutawney Phil looks for his shadow to see how much longer the cold will last. On Saturday, February 2, 2013, people can learn about the largest member of the squirrel family and meet the larger-than-life Walney groundhog at Ellanor C. Lawrence Park.
During this one-hour program starting at 1:30 p.m., participants will learn the story behind Groundhog Day and some interesting facts about this hibernating animal. A visit to the home of the Walney garden groundhog will be followed by groundhog games.
Participants must be at least three years old. Adults must register with their children. The cost is $5 per person. Registration is available at Parktakes Online. For more information, call 703-631-0013.
