FRENCH CREEK, W.Va. — French Creek Freddie, West Virginia’s favorite weather-predicting groundhog, will leave his den Friday to celebrate Groundhog Day and is inviting visitors to join him at the West Virginia State Wildlife Center in Upshur County.
“We’re excited to see everyone come out this year, including those who travel long distances to visit the Wildlife Center on this special day,” said Tyler Evans, a biologist at the Wildlife Center, in a news release issued this week. “We hope to get a favorable weather forecast from Freddie.”
Groundhog Day festivities at the Wildlife Center are all offered free of charge, and the celebration will begin at the amphitheater at 9:30 a.m. The headliner of the day, French Creek Freddie the groundhog, will emerge from his den at the center at 10 a.m.
