Happy Groundhog Day

Wireton Willy saw his shadow this morning, meaning six more weeks of winter. But we’re not sure we trust him… he’s always been kinda shady.

Maybe a groundhog’s not a great prognosticator, but you might run across one on our national forests.

Here are some facts about groundhogs:

➡️ Largest member of the squirrel family

➡️ When hibernating, their heartbeats lower to about 5 beats/minute & go 150 days without eating

➡️ Build intricate nests with chambers dedicated to living, nursery & waste
