September 9, 9:30 AM – Bees and Native Plants. Speaker – Steve Finke, Lehigh Valley Bee-keepers
Steve Finke, owner of Meadow View Beekeeping, LLC. in Kutztown and past President of the Lehigh Valley Beekeepers Association, will speak about the importance of honeybees and the recent challenges they face. There are many actions we can all take to improve the health and populations of local pollinators….from avoiding or limiting use of herbicides and pesticides in our lawns and gardens, to planting native flowering plants that provide nutrition, to becoming “backyard beekeepers” ourselves. Steve will talk about these options, show examples of honeybees on local plants and trees, and go over the basics of how to start a beekeeping hobby in your back yard.
