Groundhog Day Celebration with a Twist!

The Birmingham Zoo is celebrating Groundhog Day with a twist this year!

Due to Birmingham Bill going through hibernation at this time, the Birmingham Zoo will be having a prediction with one of the Zoo’s opossums, a native species to Alabama. Join the Zoo for the Groundhog (Opossum) Day prediction at the Birmingham Zoo’s UAB Callahan Eye Hospital Wildlife Stage to learn about Groundhog Day traditions from all over the world and find out if we’ll have six more weeks of winter. Don’t miss a chance to play kid-friendly games, make a craft and more!

*In the chance of rain, the activities and a modified Keeper Chat will be held at the Safari Peak.
