Have a sneak peek into the rigorous preparations that Sam undergoes for Groundhog Day.


At 8 a.m. (AST) each February 2nd, Sam becomes the first North American groundhog to predict when spring will arrive.

Will spring arrive early or will there be more nasty winter weather? It is a lot of pressure for one small rodent to handle. Shubenacadie Sam trains hard using meditation and yoga to keep himself focused and mentally prepared for his big day. Watch Sam and his handler at 8:00 am and 4:00 pm each day as they prepare for the big reveal on February 2nd.

You can take part in the Groundhog Day celebrations at the Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park on February 2nd starting at 7:00 am. Visit our website for more details.
