Backyard Beekeeping offered at the Rock

Join the buzz this summer at Rock Eagle 4-H Center as we learn about all things bees and beekeeping.

Honey bees are classified as superorganisms. These tiny, flying creatures work together to accomplish big things. They dance to communicate, are considered master builders in the natural world, and are the only insect to produce food for humans. With populations in decline, learn how you can help these amazing creatures, and in return, get rewarded with an endless supply of nature’s golden treat. What a sweet investment.

Rock Eagle invites you to join us, June 17, for Saturday @the Rock: Backyard Beekeeping. Back by popular demand, Putnam County Extension Agent, and beekeeping expert Keith Fielder discusses beekeeping basics, and offers advice on how to start and maintain your very own colony. Join us for this un-bee-lieavably informative session. Recommended ages 14 and up.

The program will run, 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. Doors will open at 9 a.m. Guests will convene in the center’s Natural History Museum preceding the program. Advanced registration for this program is required and cost is $5 per person.
