(Kent, Connecticut) – The Kent Memorial Library will present the program The Honey Bee and Me geared to Pre-K through grade 3, on Saturday, April 15 at 10:30 a.m. in the Library’s Junior Room. Catherine Wolko of the Humble Bee Honey Company LLC who is known as the Bee Lady will introduce the bees’ fascinating colony with three different roles. She will discuss that bees are important pollinators and just how important they are to people. She will also explain how bees find flowers and how they communicate with each other. The Bee Lady plans to bring an observation hive so the children can get a closer look.

This event is being co-sponsored by the Kent Conservation Commission. Vice Chair Carol Franken says “Children are often afraid of bees because they can be stung but they should be encouraged to appreciate the importance of bees as pollinators in the production of food. This is a very important topic because of the declining bee population.” The Conservation Commission is also donating several books about bees to the children’s collection.

The presentation is geared to Pre-K through grade 3, but open to all ages! It is not a drop off. Please register. For more information, call 860-927-3761 or go to our online calendar at kentmemoriallibrary.org. Read more about the Humble Bee Honey Company.
