Groundhog or Woodchuck? Drop In

Groundhog or Woodchuck? Drop In

Sunday, February 02

11 AM - 4 PM

All ages.


Celebrate this unique tradition by dropping in anytime during open hours to learn about Lake County's largest squirrel and one of the few true mammal hibernators of Lake County.

Get close to a real one, make some tracks, and test your trivia knowledge. Then venture outdoors to explore because Ryerson is a beautiful place in winter.

Self-guided activities set up in the Welcome Center program room.
