Wow! We’ve been busy at the Nature Center!
Summer Nature Camp is wrapping up. Our director, Rich Patterson, is celebrating 30 years of hard work at the Center next week. In the shop, we’re getting ready for a HUGE sale.
All that, and in a little over a month, we’ll be having our Honey Fest! That’s right, Autumn feels official when we start talking honey. Our Honey Fest will be on September 21st this year, from 1 PM to 4 PM right here at the barn. Come out for an afternoon of live music, beeswax candle making, beehive demonstrations and delicious prairie honey! Click here for more information.
Your I-can’t-“bee”lieve-that fact about bees for the day: Honeybees tap about two million flowers to make one pound (about 4 cups) of honey. Add into that equation the fact that each individual bee only makes 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in it’s lifetime– That’s dedication!
