Bitterroot Bill on Super Bowl Sunday

Sunday is more than just Super Bowl Sunday, it’s Groundhog Day.

The first official Groundhog Day took place in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania on February 2, 1886 (though references go back to 1841). German immigrants used animals, namely the groundhog, as a predictive barometer.

Here in Western Montana we have our own version of Groundhog Day, his name is Bitterroot Bill and he lives on the Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge just outside Stevensville. This Sunday you can go out to the Preserve and see if you can spot Bill. The folks at the preserve have put together a self-guided tour. Make sure you take your camera to record your sighting.
