Groundhog Appreciation and Celebration at The Watershed Institute
The Watershed Institute will be celebrating Groundhog Day a little early this year to share fun facts about these unique, comedic, and sometimes misunderstood animals. On Saturday, January 27 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., visitors will be led through a series of educational outdoor stations that include learning about the characteristics of a groundhog, searching for groundhog holes, meeting with naturalists for a treasure hunt/nature hike and, eventually, finding Wally the Woodchuck. Attendees will also be able to try chucking wood with a catapult or trebuchet.
Guests should arrive between 10 to 11:30 a.m. to complete all of the stations. The cost to attend is $7 per adult and $7 per child. Watershed Institute members do qualify for a discount. The Watershed website is having occasional issues with payment processing, so to secure your tickets in advance, call or email Anna Hill at 609.737.3735 ext. 42 or email@example.com.
The Watershed Institute is located at 31 Titus Mill Road in Pennington.
