Wildlife center wrapping year of preparation for annual event

Upshur

Staff at the West Virginia Wildlife Center are putting the final touches on their plans for Groundhog’s day festivities.

Wildlife Biologist Tyler Evans said the center has been working all year to organize the event,

In addition to caring for the animals living there, crews also arrange for staffing in the center and for the special events offered there during its busiest day of the off season, one that brings people from around the country.

“We got people in from Georgia, from Florida, from a lot of places where you may not think of people travelling north this time of year when they have the nice weather down there, but they’re coming up to see what French Creek Freddie is going to predict and we’re happy to have their support as well,” said Evans.

Freddie will reveal his prediction at 10 o’clock Friday morning.
