Groundhog Day Prediction Being Made by ‘Winnipeg Willow’

Winnipeg Willow


Will Manitoba see six more weeks of winter or are we in for an early spring?

“Winnipeg Willow” will visit Mountain Equipment Co-op (303 Portage Avenue) on Saturday for Groundhog Day. Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre will bring Willow to make her annual prediction, along with an American Kestrel.

Several Groundhog Day activities will be available for children as they meet this local furry celebrity.

The free festivities will run from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Praire Wildlife will be back on Sunday, February 3, from noon to 4 p.m. with a burrowing owl and peregrine falcon.

Last year, Willow predicted winter would last for another six weeks, while the province’s other groundhog, Manitoba Merv, said an early spring was on the way.
