Kent Memorial Library will present a program, “The Honey Bee and Me,” April 15 at 10:30 a.m.

The program, geared for children in grades pre-K through third grade, will be led by Catherine Wolko “The Bee Lady” of the Humble Bee Honey Company LLC.

Wolko will discuss how bees are important pollinators and how important they are to people. She’ll explain how bees find flowers and how they communicate with each other.

This event is being co-sponsored by the Kent Conservation Commission.

“Children are often afraid of bees because they can be stung, but they should be encouraged to appreciate the importance of bees as pollinators in the production of food,” said Conservation Commission Vice Chairman Carol Franken.

“This is a very important topic because of the declining bee population,” she said.

The Conservation Commission will also donate several books about bees to the children’s collection.
