The Barbour County Beekeepers will host "National Honey Bee Day" from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday on the Barbour County Courthouse lawn.
The "National Honey Bee Day" program is hosted one day each year to remind the public how to support, help and save the honey bee. Just as beekeepers reach out to the public with events associated with National Honey Bee Day, the public can get involved daily with helping bees. The association will have information on ways non-beekeepers can help save the honey bee.
Local beekeepers will be on hand to share their experience and knowledge on beekeeping and share general facts about bees. They will have an observation hive with a marked queen so folks can see firsthand how the bees make honey. There also will be a selection of local honey for sale.
The world's production of food depends on pollination provided by honey bees.
For more information on National Honey Bee Day, anyone interested can call Lester Lind at 304-457-1420 or Joyce Frey at 304-457-2177.
