Beekeepers demonstrate how to raise bees at Beaver Creek

By  | 

FALL CREEK, Wis. (WEAU) -- People had the chance to learn from the best when it comes to some of the most important pollinators of our environment.

Beaver Creek Reserve in Fall Creek hosted a Beekeepers Association program where bee experts showed attendees the art of beekeeping. Some of the skills taught by the experts included harvesting, winter preparation and spring maintenance of the bees. Event organizers say it’s important to offer events like these because pollinators are vital to the environment and interest in beekeeping has grown.

“We’re trying to successfully help new beekeepers in their new hobby with raising their bees, harvesting their honey and over wintering their bees so that they’re more successful as a whole as beekeepers and hobbyists,” Randy Ryckal, Chippewa – Eau Claire Beekeepers Association President, said. “It helps protect the environment, the nature.”

Attendees got to take their own jar of honey home at the end of the day.
