Families search for groundhogs at Prairie RidgeRecord Numbers Search for Groundhogs at Prairie Ridge


A mild February afternoon greeted over 50 woodchuck watchers to Prairie Ridge in their search for groundhogs. A Groundhog Day weather forecast by Sir Walter Wally has become an annual tradition at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Downtown Raleigh. Prairie Ridge has joined the fun by offering an annual search for our resident wild groundhogs and their burrows. Although we did not catch glimpse of one of our groundhogs this year, participants enjoyed the warm afternoon during the guided tour of the place local groundhogs call home.
