Groundhog Day Celebration at Botanical Gardens

Groundhog Day is a day to take everything a little less seriously and break up the winter monotony…at least for a little while. But you don’t have to travel all the way to Punxsutawney to celebrate. The seer of seers, groundhog “Smith Lake Jake” will make his prognostication right here at the Garden! According to legend, if Smith Lake Jake sees his shadow, he’ll return to his den and winter will continue for another six weeks. If the day is cloudy and he doesn’t see his shadow, spring will arrive early. Bring your cameras to capture that special moment and join him for a morning of festivities and a ticketed lunch.
