Our next club meeting is on Wednesday, July 12th at 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome and all are invited to come early to socialize before the meeting!
The World of the Honey Bee
Our July speaker is beekeeper Gregg Walter and he is speaking on The World of the Honey Bee. The humble honey bee plays a crucial role in our fragile ecosystem. The universe the bees live in is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Come join Gregg as he lifts the lid on the hive and gives you an amazing tour of its occupants and activity. He will share include a little history of bees, an introduction to the different types of bees, and the variety of jobs they perform. Be prepared to learn such tidbits as “How many flowers does it take to make a pint of honey?”
The Garden Club of Waukegan called Gregg Walter “the best speaker we’ve ever had”. With over thirteen years of experience as a beekeeper and the purveyor of Harbor Honey, Gregg has learned a fascinating array of information which he conveys in a lively presentation. A key member of the Lake County Beekeepers Association, Gregg presently serves as chairman of their Program Committee.
