Cape Coral residents are invited to join the City in support of Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife’s (CCFW) fifth annual Ground Owl Day.
The event will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, February 2, at Pelican Baseball Complex, 4128 Pelican Boulevard. Ground Owl Day pays homage to the burrowing owl and, just like the groundhog in Punxsutawney, PA, each year, we look to the owl for guidance on what kind of weather to expect in the next six weeks.
“This event is our way of localizing the classic Groundhog Day and making it our own,” said CCFW Ground Owl Day Event Coordinator Pascha Donaldson. “It’s also an excellent opportunity to spread awareness and provide education on Cape Coral’s burrowing owls.”
This year’s event will feature Mayor John Gunter reading the Ground Owl Day Proclamation and NBC2 Meteorologist Rob Dunns as the Master of Ceremonies. The event will conclude with a determination of whether Southwest Florida’s “winter weather” will continue for another six weeks or end sooner.
