Free youth programs at Glen Helen Pancake Breakfast
- Published: March 19, 2011
Glen Helen naturalists are offering free youth programs throughout the 36th Annual Pancake Breakfast. That means friends can kick back for that second cup of Emporium coffee while enjoying a Corndaddies tune. Or sample local syrup from Flying Mouse Farms. Or just kick back and enjoy spring from the heart of your favorite 1000-acre nature preserve.
