The Door County community was educated on the importance of bees during the inaugural Community Honey Harvest at the Crossroads at Big Creek on Saturday. Organized by the Door County Beekeepers Club the event allowed event-goers of all ages to learn about bees while participating and watching activities and demonstrations. These included a children’s educational area, candle making demonstrations and hive and honey extraction demonstrations. Co-President of the Door County Beekeepers Club Mark Lentz says the event was created as a way to educate the community on the importance bees play in our environment.
The community was also able to try many different kinds of honey, a honey lemonade and honey mead. Everyone attending the event was able to take home a pollinator plant as well.
