Nature Center Sets Groundhog Day Hike Feb. 2 The elusive groundhog will be sought on Groundhog day, 1974, as the Indian Creek Nature cen- ter presents its first public ac- tivity a free Groundhog day- hike Feb. 2 from 2 to 4 p.m. Hikers will lake to the woods on a naturalist-guided walk in- to the world of the proverbial groundhog, more properly termed, woodchuck. It is likely that the groundhog will be snoozing beneath the frostline and will not be aroused even on its namesake day, ac- cording to Nature center direc- tor, Curtis D. Abdotich. How- ever, many other animal tracks and dens should be seen as well as some of the earliest signs of spring, he said. The hike will proceed, regard- less of weather conditions, but hikers are reminded that snow covering and possible alternate thawing conditions will make boots and overshoes a "must." "Indian Creek Nature center is a very new cultural and edu- cational addition to the Cedar Rapids area one with which many people have yet to be- come said Ab- douch. "The Nature center com- bines wise use of natural lands, building facilities and profes- sional staff in order to offer many unique opportunities for nature and wildlife study, out- door recreation and environ- mental awareness for people of all ages." The Nature center is located at the junction of Otis and Ber- tram roads, just south of Mt. Vernon road in extreme south- eastern Cedar Rapids, and will headquarter in a red tile barn soon to be renovated. The clos- est and most convenient park- ing area is at the head of the Sac and Fox trail. The hike wil! begin from there.
