"Buzz About Benton" Hive Tour Happening THIS Sunday!

Heard the buzz?  
The "Buzz About Benton" Self-guided Backyard Bee Hive Tour 
is THIS Sunday, June 30th, 12 - 4pm

Learn about why pollinators are so pivotal and how you can raise some at your own home (or at least make your own home safe for pollinators).  Nine different sites will be featured from backyard set ups, hives on farms, commercial operations and a learning center.  Tour headquarters will be at SAGE where you can buy a ticket, pick up the tour map and peruse bee related merchandise OR save a couple bucks by buying tickets early HERE.

By signing up online, you can register for a free get up close and personal demo of a working hive (don't worry an expert from Nectar Bee Supply will be guiding this part of the day) and we'll have bee veils/hats available for folks to wear.

With the weather looking to be warm, come beat the heat with the after party at down on the waterfront at Downward Dog.  They'll be featuring drinks made from Nectar Bee Supply honey or enjoy some local Nectar Creek Honey Wine!  Yum!

  1. The Arts in Education Program recognizes the importance of arts learning both within schools (in non-arts and arts classrooms) and beyond school walls in the community (art centers and museums).
