Pancakes and Herons 

When: Sat., March 5 2011

They don't call blue herons "great" for nothing. Most guys we know could get a clue from the male of the species, who schleps up from sunny climes this time of year to his frigid northern nesting grounds, just to make sure the family home is in tip-top form for when his girlfriend finally flies into town. You can salute the standup fellow (and his lucky lady, too) this morning at Old Trail School, with a pancake-fueled celebration of herons, the impending springtime, and the virtues of good housekeeping. The fun kicks off at 8 a.m. with an optional morning hike to the nearby Bath Road rookery. Pancakes are served from 8:30 to noon. Afterward, the kids can check out the activity stations to learn more about herons and their habitats through stories and crafts. Cost is $8 for adults and $6 for kids 6 to 12; wee ones 5 and younger are free. Old Trail School is at 2315 Ira Rd. in Akron. Call 800-642-3297 ext. 100 or visit to learn more. — Cicora
