Role of the Honey Bee with Ken Warchol

Date: Thursday, July 12, 2017
Time: 6-7 P.M.

Join Ken Warchol, a veteran beekeeper who will share his knowledge with a narrated visual presentation. You will travel right inside a bee-hive to better understand the mysterious social insect and the role that it plays in humanity's survival on Earth. Learn about the challenges honeybees face in our environment and find out how we can help this insect that is essential to our own survival.

Because of his unique talent with bees he is considered by many as the bee whisperer. Warchol brings samples of a variety of honey for everyone to taste - yum!
