Event Information

Punxsutawney Phil may be the most well-known groundhog in Pennsylvania but they have a whole family of the furry and friendly critters right in the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum. "Tinicum Tim and Tina" and their "Tinicum Twins", representing the many actual groundhogs now hibernating at the refuge under the protection of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are gearing up for their own take on Groundhog Day. It will be a few days earlier than that "other" Groundhog Day and on a Sat., Jan. 28 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. so the entire family can join in the fun. Along with the Tim, Tina and the Twins, the celebration will include family oriented fun and hands-on activities highlighting the history of Groundhog Day as well as refuge critters, groundhog walks, indoor craft activities for children, talks about Lenape culture, weather and live animals from the Philadelphia Zoo. All this plus live music from local troubadour, Glen Waldek, will culminate in a burrow-side celebration.
