Groundhog Day Prediction at Wyoming Library

Wyoming, ON – Plympton-Wyoming Mayor Lonny Napper will be visiting the Wyoming Library along with Lambton's famous groundhog, Oil Springs Ollie, on Friday February 2 at 9 a.m. where the duo will predict whether an early spring is coming to Lambton in 2018.

 "This will be an exciting morning as we anticipate whether Ollie sees his shadow and if we should expect more winter weather or an early spring," says Lise Babcock, Children's Services Coordinator at Lambton County Library.  "After Ollie makes his prediction, there will be time for a talk on groundhogs, crafts and colouring."

Heaven's Wildlife Rescue, a rehabilitation and education centre located in Lambton County, will be leading the educational presentation on groundhogs.   "The centre rehabilitates orphaned, injured and displaced wildlife patients and on this Groundhog Day, the Library and the Centre are encouraging visitors to bring with them any small, broken or unwanted toys and stuffed animals for donation to the centre," explains Babock.  "Toys are well-used by the rescue animals who need to stay active while staying at the centre."  

Oil Springs Ollie is a permanent resident at Heaven's Wildlife Rescue.  The groundhog was a rescued animal who is unable to be released back in the wild.  This is his fifth prediction.
