Join us at the August meeting for a re-cap on our honey booth at the Illinois State Fair as well as a lesson on Observation Hives given by Harry Patterson. Harry has set up numerous observation hives at the Sci-Tech Museum in Aurora as well as many nature centers in the Fox Valley area. Harry is an outdoor-ed educator and has lots of gems to share about how to share our love of bees with the community.
