Waterman Center to Celebrate That Graminivorous Rodent

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

There’s no need to pack the kids in the car and travel to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to enjoy Groundhog Day.

The Waterman Conservation Education Center in Apalachin will be holding a special event of its own on Saturday.

Children and adults will be able to learn about the natural history of the groundhog and the story behind the legend of Groundhog Day.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Waterman executive director Scott MacDonald said it’s true — groundhogs are graminivorous. They eat grasses and berries and things like that.

MacDonald said it seemed appropriate to celebrate a unique day and a unique animal with a special event at the conservation center, which is on Hilton Road in Apalachin.

The center’s Groundhog Day program will be Saturday at 4 p.m. Admission is $5.

The Waterman Conservation Education Center may be contacted at 607.625.2221. There’s more information about the center at watermancenter.org.
