September Meeting

What’s The Buzz About Honey Bees

Presenter: Sue Kendrick

Have you ever wondered what happens in beehives and how beekeepers access the honey without being stung? When Sue Kendrick retired, she inherited some hives and equipment. She also found herself a sweet new hobby. While honeybees work to make honey, Sue makes sure they are safe. She keeps an eye on their health, deals with any parasites, and makes sure the bees are able to get through a cold New England winter, long after flowers have disappeared. Although we have many native bees that also pollinate flowers, the honeybee is not a native — it’s a welcome import from Asia, by way of Europe.

Wednesday, September 20, starting at 7 p.m.

Tolman Auditorium, Springfield Science Museum
