What does Groundhog day really mean? I honestly don’t know but hiking and exploring nature is always fun! Bring family, friends, and children to Roaring Brook Nature Center for a guided walk through nature. Preregistration is not required and this event is open to all. This is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Also, I just looked up what groundhog day is. According to folklore, on this day if it is cloudy when this infamous groundhog emerges from from his hole, it means that spring will come early. However, if it is sunny and the groundhog emerges to see its own shadow, it will be frightened back into its whole and winter will persist for another six weeks. See if you can spot this happening as you enjoy the scenery that Roaring Brook has to offer! Here are the event details:
