Hog Wild


Today is Groundhog Day, and the Metroparks have a trio of free events lined up to help you celebrate. First, head over to Brecksville Nature Center (off Route 82 in Brecksville; 440-526-1012) at 10:30 a.m. to sneak a peek at Brecksville Ben and maybe his shadow. At 1 p.m., there’s a special Drop In Discovery session about groundhogs. Finally, wrap things up at 7 p.m. at the North Chagrin Nature Center (off SOM Center Road in Mayfield Village; 440-473-3370), where a naturalist will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the furry critter.
Fri., Feb. 2, 10:30-11:15 a.m.
