National Honey Bee Day!

National Honey Bee Day!

One out of every three bites of food in the United States depends on honey bees and other pollinators. Honey Bees pollinate $15 billion worth of crops each year, including more than 130 fruits and vegetables. Due to disease, parasites, poor nutrition, and other factors however, the number of honey bees has declined by 30% in the last 50 years.*

What can we do to save this vital part of our ecosystem? Join local bee keeper, Terri Tennant, as we explore the wonderful world of the honey bee. Learn ways in which we can help save them from extinction. We will talk about, and sample some different types of honey-the taste depends on what plants the bees have pollinated.

This program is a free event and open to the public. Registration is suggested.
