Take a Hike
– The Buzz on Bees
By John Nye Cullity
Some weeks ago one of our Sandwich Conservation Trust board members suggested that we substitute an indoor public presentation for our usual monthly walk in February. Given the iffy mid-winter weather, it seemed a good idea. Besides that, we learned that a couple who had been SCT members for some time, would be willing to present an interesting nature related program for us.
Paul and Claire Desilets of East Sandwich have been keeping bees for many years, and their hives adorn many a cranberry bog in town. Their interest goes far beyond just selling honey, however. They have a passion for sharing their knowledge about bees, beekeeping, and nature with anyone who will listen, and that’s just what they will do for us this coming Sunday.
“The Buzz on Bees” will be presented free of charge at the library, beginning at 2 P.M. this Sunday. If the circumstances work out, Paul and Claire may even have some bees with them – in controlled conditions, of course. If you don’t already know, honeybees are amazing creatures as well as beneficial to humans. Please come and join us for a great presentation at the library.
