Hey, Mary: Kline Creek's got some lambs, too

Mary had a little lamb and we're sure that was very nice for her.
But visitors to Kline Creek Farm near West Chicago can check out at least 13 of the creatures that have been born since January -- and maybe a few more still on the way.
Lambing season at the 1890s working farm operated by the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, is coming to a close Monday, but you still have plenty of time to check out the new lambs -- including some twins -- and talk to interpreters about the role sheep and other livestock played on a farm around the turn of the past century.
Some of the lambs will find longtime homes at the farm while others will find their way to market. But for now, they're mostly hanging out with their moms.
Kline Creek is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Mondays at 1N600 County Farm Road. Admission is free. For details, call (630) 876-5900 or visit dupageforest.org.
Oh, and if you see Mary, be sure to give her a sheepish grin and say hi.
