North Branch Land Trust is offering its members and their guests the opportunity to see and learn about honey bees on its Howland Preserve located five miles west of Tunkhannock.


Kevin Baker, professional beekeeper, will present an Introduction to Bees Workshop at The Howland Preserve at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 13. He will present a discussion about the business of beekeeping, the decline of honeybees and why they are so important to our ecosystem.


Baker will explain and demonstrate all the equipment necessary for keeping honeybees then lead a walk to the actual apiary to see the bees at work. With favorable conditions, harvesting some honey may be possible.


As a full-time beekeeper, Baker maintains over 30 hives in three northeastern Pennsylvania counties. He also specializes in removing bees from buildings.


The event is free to NBLT members and $10 for guests. Registration is required and directions will be given upon registration. Register by emailing romanansky@nblt.org or by calling 696-5545.
