November 23, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — With the guidance and designs of a Penn State landscape designer, the Groundhog Club Inner Circle is looking at enhancements at Punxsutawney Phil’s Groundhog Day home — and what better place to start than the location where fans and guests enter Gobbler’s Knob.

Tuesday, the club held a public awareness and input meeting to provide information about a $9,000 landscape design matching grant from the PA Wilds Design Assistance Program, with a grant from National Parks Serves Preserve America Fund and DCED Municipal Services Fund.
