Land Trust hosts bee-keeping tour

Have you ever marveled about honey? The color, the texture, the taste? Not only does it sweeten things, it also has medicinal properties.

The critters who make this miracle substance – bees -are fascinating to study. One of the premier bee keepers in the county, Randy Oliver, will be offering people the chance to visit his bee yard. You’ll see the hive. You’ll tour the honey extraction room, getting a taste of fresh local honey, and you’ll hear the history of bee keeping. Oliver will tell you what to wear, and he has bee-protective gear. No young kids, please.

This event is being offered between 2 and 5 p.m. on May 20 by reservation only through the Nevada County Land Trust; $12 for members and $17 for nonmembers. Call the Land Trust at 272-5994 for more information.
