John and Susanna Favaron installed bees in the observation hive at the Caesar Creek Nature Center! Many more hands from our club and Erin and Jonas from the Nature Center have helped get the hive usable and running. It is sure to spark conversations about the role of bees for pollination and honey production and just may inspire future beekeepers! Be sure to stop by the Nature Center at Caesar Creek to check it out.
Geoff Hultgren and his daughter Frances recently gave of their time to present to the Summer Camp at Quaker Knoll. The children were very intrigued and enjoyed trying on protective gear for size!
The sun was shining at the Caesar Creek Nature Center Saturday as club member John Favaron brought his observation hive and shared with the visitors about caring for honey bees. Fantastic job, John!
A big thank you to Alex Zomchek for speaking at our June club meeting! He shared his experience on apiary management and answered lots of our questions. What were some of the biggest takeaways? Monitor your colonies, learn their ebbs and flows and be prepared to help them to build their fall nest in the same way we help them to build their spring nest.
