MASSENA – A guided groundhog hike hosted by the Jr. Earth Keepers group will be held at the Nature Center for kids five to 12 years olds Feb. 8 from 1 to 3 p.m. weather permitting.

Participants will snowshoe hike through nature trails looking for signs of groundhog activity, learn facts about groundhogs and find out why this animal has its own special day celebrated annually.

Snowshoes will be provided onsite, free of charge. Following the guided hike, participants will form groups and use GPS units to find clues leading to a special groundhog. GPS units will be provided by the Nature Center.

Participants should check the club’s status on Facebook and, if weather permits, meet at the trailhead at the Nature Center, dressed for weather. Contact 705-5022 or ncrebirth@yahoo.com to sign up.
