Bee-lieve It Or Not

Thanks to more than 70 people who attended last evening’s Bee-ginning Beekeeping at MontourPreserve. Jim Wilson of Brushy Mountain Bee Farm shared a wealth of how-to information on getting started with bees and keeping a hive healthy and happy. (After all, happy honeybees make more honey.) This program kicked off a celebration of National Pollinator Week and will continue with two additional programs. The next is a showing of “The Bee Movie” on Friday evening. Rounding out the week will be a “Mystery Bee Tea” on Sunday. If you didn’t register for the tea, unfortunately you are out of luck until next year. The tea is currently filled to capacity. Not a bad idea to give a little thought to all the foods bees, butterflies, moths, beetles and bats provide us through pollination. We owe about one-third of the human diet to pollinators.
