Pointing out the Queen Bee for folks attending the 4-H Fair!

The Montgomery County 4-H Beekeeping Club meets once a month from February to September.  Our motto is “Sweet as honey, Busy as bees.”  The club has two beehives behind the 4-H Center and members have a chance to do hands-on beekeeping if they don’t have their own hives.

The Bee Club has lots of fun activities including cooking with honey, building equipment and the ever popular candy bee anatomy.  For 2011 they are really excited to plant a pollinator garden at the center and have already seen their bees on the witch hazel flowers early in the spring! 

Every year the Bee Club has a tent at the Montgomery County 4-H Fair and talks to the public about these fascinating creatures.
