Honey Bee Awareness Program Set For Sept. 11

Watch a live bee swarm during a Honey Bee Awareness program scheduled from 2:30 p.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11 at Nixon County Park.

Bee specialist Jeremy Barnes will create a bee swarm to help participants understand this seldom-seen event in a beehive’s life. Swarming bees, though docile during this process, will be actively flying around in search of their queen.

Participants safely will be able to get close to the bees and have their questions answered.HoneyBees
