According to legend, Punxsutawney Phil foretells the impending weather each year. If he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. If not, spring is near. Ongoing activities throughout the afternoon include nature hikes, a groundhog obstacle course, snow sculptures (if there's snow), crafts, refreshments, and more. The official groundhog celebration takes place at 2:00 pm in the warm and spacious barn. Families with children of all ages are invited to join this fun seasonal event. Meets in the barn. Please dress for the weather since many of the activities will be outdoors. Registration required. Sun., Feb. 2, 1-4 p.m. Members: adults, $7; children, $6. Non-members: adults, $9; children, $7. Mass. Audubon, Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, 87 Perkins Row, Topsfield.
