LCBA at Wolf Creek Eco Day 2016

A team of LCBA members gave a presentation on bees and beekeeping at the Wolf Creek Fish Hatcheries in Jamestown, Kentucky on October 21, 2016. The occasion was the Wolf Creek Eco Day, and the LCBA presentation was one of 8 stations set up for all of the Grade 4 pupils in Russell County. Over 200 students attended, along with their teachers. This was a wonderful occasion for LCBA to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for bees and beekeeping with a very attentive young audience.  A further report on this event appears in the November 2016 LCBA newsletter.
