Another fun activity I heard about through Free Things to do in Chicago:
Mark your calendars! Bring the family out to the North Park Village Nature Center on March 26 & 27, 2011 to experience the entire maple syrup making process, from tapping the tree and collecting sap to boiling it down to syrup. Stroll the sugar bush, enjoy storytelling and live music, make a craft, and taste homemade syrup.
Date: March 26 & 27, 2011
Start Time: 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Location : North Park Village Nature Center
5801 N. Pulaski Road
Come out to these family friendly and nature friendly events. From campfires and hikes, to story-telling and canoe trips, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
