I spent yesterday manning the FCBA beekeeping table at the 2014 Catoctin Creek Park Nature Fest in Middletown MD. The event was well-attended and packed with exhibitors. To my left was the MD Bluebird Society. To my right were folks from Wild Birds Unlimited. Mike Turell was across the way from me with his Bug Buddies and their insect collection. (I even met Rosie the tarantula!) Bird walks, gardening, tree plantings, archery sessions, campfire activities, live raptor and turtle presentations, nature crafts, and, of course, honey bees made for quite an educational experience for kids and grown-ups alike.
