LINCOLN, MA — Ms. G. saw her shadow at Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary in Lincoln on February 2, Groundhog Day. As the official Groundhog of the Commonwealth, her body-language prognostication was clear: six more weeks of winter. The enthusiastic assemblage of mostly kids and parents (with a contingent of Groundhog Day buffs also on hand) seemed fine with the forecast, as they cheered Ms. G’s always accurate prediction, her 11th at Drumlin Farm.
State Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matthew A. Beaton will join the Groundhog Day celebration at Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary in Lincoln Friday, Feb. 2, when Ms. G, the Official Groundhog of the Commonwealth, will make her annual prediction on the length of the remaining winter.
