Groundhog Day Hike

Celebrate Groundhog Day — or if you prefer — Woodchuck Day! We’ll be on a search for the sleepy critter at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 10-11 a.m.

We’ll take a hike in the woods to look for their tracks, talk about hibernation, and learn about their role in ecology. We may even see a groundhog looking at his shadow! This program is for all-ages.
