Celebrate Arbor Day in Graham, NC

Featured

Please visit with club members Caitlin Vatikiotis-Bateson and Sheyenne Michelizzi on Saturday, April 21st from 10:00 A.M. to noon to celebrate Arbor Day on a Family Fun Day in the City of Graham, NC at the Captain White House.

Even though Arbor Day in North Carolina was celebrated on March 16th this year, National Arbor Day is celebrated on April 27th. As you know, honey bees forage on nectar and pollen in mid-winter here in the Piedmont of NC well before our wild flowers are in bloom. The importance of tree species to all pollinators was clearly displayed in Mike Conner’s presentation entitled Bees and Trees at the 2015 Heartland Apicultural Society annual conference in July 2015.
