The First of Four Classes to Help you Love Bees! 

Instructor Julie Winters

Admission by Donation

What would we do without bees? The whole world would be a much different place: bees pollinate roughly one six of the flowering plants worldwide and a staggering 400 different agricultural plants. From flowers to food bees are a hard working, invaluable part of nature... and your backyard!

Let’s take a look at the amazing world of bees and acknowledge all they do for us. Whether you are interested in keeping them as long term guest, or just prefer they occasionally visit, Julie will help you make the most of your back yard! It’s the first of a series of talks for those interested in bees - lovers or keepers alike.


The first of a series, there will more about bees every first Monday until June!
