Snickers, Portage’s Prickly Prognosticator, enjoys a cob of corn at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center while checking for his shadow yesterday and … he did not see his shadow (probably due to the fog in Portage Valley) and we will take it! Therefore, we will enjoy an early spring at the Center and we look forward to it! Warming temperatures, melting snow and new baby animals – all equal the excitement and fun of the summer to come at the Wildlife Center.
