On Saturday, February 2 at 10 a.m. Sharp!, come to the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum’s Outdoor Discovery Center, on Muser Drive, across from 174 Angola Road, Cornwall, for an old fashioned Groundhog Day Celebration. Meet a live Groundhog for a prognostication at 10am sharp and join Master of Ceremonies, Carl Heitmuller, to determine if there will be an early spring. Learn about these furry prognosticators and the history behind this age-old tradition.

“The Groundhog’s body temperature drops from 98 degrees to as low as 40 degrees while hibernating!” said Pam Golben, Director of the Wildlife Education Center. “The Groundhog is one of the few true hibernators in our region.” Join Museum Environmental Educators for crafts, games and a guided walk in search of shadows! Pre-paid registration is required for this program and it is for all ages. Admission: Adults-$8, Children-$5. Museum Members: Adults-$6, Children-$4. For more information and online pre-paid registration visit hhnaturemuseum.org or call 845-534-5506, ext. 204.
