Door County Beekeepers Club teaching families about bees

You and your children have a chance to learn about bees and beekeeping in Sturgeon Bay later this month. The Door County Beekeepers Club is hosting a community honey harvest at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay on August 24th. Members of the beekeepers club will be extracting honey from hives that you will be able to eat there. Protective bee suits for adults and children will be available to wear so you can get up close to the bees. Mark Lentz, co-president of the Door County Beekeepers Club, says the club wants to get children interested in bees so they will have a bigger interest in protecting them in the future.



The overuse of pesticides and losing habitats are major threats to bees all the over the country according to Lentz. He adds that about 42% of the bee population died off in 2018 in the United States. The community honey harvest will begin at 9 AM and will last until noon at Crossroads on the 24th.
