Groundhog Day 2023 at Drumlin Farm

February 2, 2023
Two people watching Ms G the groundhog

While groundhogs can’t actually determine whether or not we will have an early spring, Groundhog Day is a fun tradition that offers us time to reflect on the changing season.

Drumlin Farm’s own groundhog, Ms. G, was declared the Official State Groundhog by then-Governor Deval Patrick on July 31, 2014. He signed the proposed bill submitted by Wellesley’s Hunnewell Elementary School students, enacting it into law.

Watch the Forecast

Join us to watch Ms. G as she wakes from her winter hibernation and “predicts” whether or not spring will come early this year. 

The live groundhog forecast starts at 10 am, followed by winter activities such as meeting resident wildlife, exploring wilderness trails, family-friendly groundhog crafts, and learning how to identify animal tracks in the snow. Visitors will also learn how New England wildlife survives the winter and how the changing climate impacts their habitat.

Cost

This event is included with admission (free for Mass Audubon members, $9 adults and teens; $6 seniors, children 2-12 for nonmembers)
