Climate Action Day at Drumlin Farm!

February 2, 2019

10:00 am-3:00 pm

Free with admission or membership

Join us on Groundhog Day (Saturday, February 2) to dig into the science of climate and weather!

How has our New England climate changed and what can we do to help? Weather and climate activities will take place throughout the day, focusing on simple things families can do to make a difference. Hot cocoa will be provided!

Families will also have the chance to see Drumlin's very own Ms. G, the Official State Groundhog of Massachusetts. Watch her make a prediction about the weather in the coming months—will we have 6 more weeks of winter or will we get an early spring? 

Suitable for all ages.
