‘The Honey Bee and Me’ on tap
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.
