April 23, 2018 by  

This spring, the North Conway area’s Tin Mountain Conservation Center has planned an evening event that will give the public a chance to get a sneak peek into the secret lives of bees.

Wonalancet Honey Bee Co.’s Athena Contus will be leading the group through a discussion of honeybees. She will include both still images and video clips in the presentation.

The talk will describe the complex behaviors of European honeybees, the family relationships between the females in the hive, and also the behavior of queens and male drones. They participants will learn about how these patterns can help to ensure the long term survival of the colony and protect it from predators.

Along with this information, there will be details shared about the behavioral patterns of native species and how they compare to honeybees introduced from Europe. The video and picture components of the presentation will provide visual illustrations of the points raised. Flyer printing techniques can be utilized by a printer to create materials that promote an event like this to the local community.

This event is scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm sharp on May 17, and anyone who is interested is welcome to attend. The conservation center is located at 1245 Bald Hill Road in Conway, and anyone who would like to find out more can do so by visiting its website.
