It's almost here! Please join us in celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Honey Bee Haven this Saturday, May 2, from 10 am to 2 pm. There will be beekeeping demonstrations, information about native bee conservation and identification, and lots to learn about bee gardening. And if that weren't enough, we'll be giving out free wildflower seeds and ice cream from Häagen-Dazs. Yes, free ice cream!
We'll also have bee houses for sale, a raffle, and free one-year subscriptions (or renewals) to Better Homes and Gardens for anyone who donates $10 or more to the garden.
Here is the complete schedule, along with photos of some of the bees you might see at the Haven:
