National Honey Bee Day
At ‘Bee’ch Fork State Park, National Honey Bee Day starts with a bee craft for kids (and adults!) starting at 5:30 p.m.
Join the park naturalist at 6:30 p.m. for a short walk to see and learn about Beech Fork’s pollinator field and bee hives. Our hives are in an out-of-the-way area, but on the walking route for this special day. If you attend the ‘bee walk,’ your name will be entered in a drawing to win a free jar of West Virginia honey. Activities are open to the public without charge.
It’s a ‘bee’autiful day to get outside and learn about WV’s state insect, The Honeybee (Apis mellifer) on its National Day of Celebration.
