Walton County Extension Office offers bee education class

Press release from the Walton county extension office

Join the Walton County Extension Office from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Aug. 23, 2017 to learn about bees!

Honey bees have been the Official State Insect of Georgia since 1975, and a subject of teaching and inquiry at the University of Georgia for decades. These marvelous insects are manageable and are used to produce honey and pollinate crops. They are practical models of biological organization and social behavior.

Honey bee research at the University of Georgia addresses sustainable bee health management issues as well as more basic questions on bee pollination and foraging ecology. In all its endeavors, the UGA Honey Bee Program aims to develop research, teaching and extension initiatives that are locally responsive while globally relevant.
