Saturday, August 8, 2015, 11:00am to 12:00noon
Honeybees have been the primary worker in producing more than half of all of our favorite foods, but the bee population is diminishing. Find out why and how you can help.
Hadassah Lamppin is entering her first year of study at the University of Louisville and has done extensive research on the plight of the bee. To earn her Girl Scout Gold Award she is presenting a 1-hour program to raise awareness. The program is for all ages and includes "The Navigation Game", honeyed sweets, and a Q & A session. Take-home handouts will be available. Learn how to 'BEE ACTIVE' in the fight against honeybee extinction!
Cost: FREE
Reservations not required, but seating is limited.
Call 458-1328 to reserve your spot.
