Alan Walne, Dallas Arboretum board chairman, said, “Being a botanical garden and outdoor venue that is open 362 days a year, the Dallas Arboretum revolves around the weather. That said, we want to know whether we’ll have an early spring or not, so our groundhog, Arboretum Annie, helps us predict the weather.”
