PWR Celebrates Groundhog Day 2012

     Here at PWR we have two special reasons to celebrate Groundhog's Day: Hansel and Gretel, our resident groundhogs. The holiday is also a chance to thank our friends and volunteers. In honor of the groundhog, check out our new coloring pages, a photo gallery of some of the groundhogs we have had the privilege of working with and our latest video!

"Groundhog Day" by Phil Pierce

This video is our way of thanking the Likewise Jazz Trio for donating their time to perform for us at a fund-raiser last year. We also wanted to tell Hansel and Gretel's story. They have touched the lives of many people through their work as our ambassadors. Hansel and Gretel came to us two years ago when only a few days old. Their mother was accidentally killed by a construction worker. A caring neighbor found them. When they came to PWR as babies, Hansel and Gretel had some minor health issues that prevented them from being good candidates for release. We applied for a permit to give them status as educational animals. So when they wake up this Spring, they'll have work to do. They will travel to schools and workplaces to continue to tell their story, the stories of other native wildlife and of PWR's efforts.

Watch their video and don't forget to check out the photo gallery for more pictures of Hansel and Gretel.
