Come enjoy the sweet taste of summer at Brukner Nature Center’s annual Honey Harvest presented by the Miami Valley’s Beekeepers Association. Did you know that colonists brought honey bees to America more than 300 years ago? Before that, there was no native honey except from bumblebees. Did you know that there are 30,000 to 60,000 bees in a hive – one queen, hundreds of drones and the rest, workers?! Bees fly between 10 and 15mph and must make 40,000 to 80,000 trips to make a single pound of honey!
You can escape the heat in our beautiful air-conditioned Heidelberg Auditorium and learn all about the process of beekeeping from setting up the hive to processing the honey for your table.
Enjoy a taste of this season’s hard work, courtesy of the honey bees at Brukner Nature Center! Free!
