Who can resist a stack of pancakes dripping with syrup?
Head to Schaumburg, where the flapjacks come with a side of
science and history (and sausage). Historical re-enactors portray
how pioneers and Native Americans perfected the art of maple syrup,
while tapped trees and boiling pots demonstrate the process of
turning sap into the stuff we pour over short stacks. The main
attraction is the pancake breakfast, even if you have to wait in
"Once they get their pancakes, they're all happy," organizer
Dave Brooks says. Free admission; $5 full stack, $4 half stack. 9
a.m.-noon. March 17-18. Spring Valley Nature Center & Heritage
Farm, 1111 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg. (847) 985-2100, parkfun.com.
