East Georgia State College will celebrate Earth Day and the honey bee on Saturday, April 20, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Fulford Community Learning Center. An important pollinator, honey bees contribute more than $14 billion annually to U.S. agriculture, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The festival is free and open to the public and will feature a variety of children’s activities and honey tasting. The Bobcat Apiary Honey Bees will also be on display. Visitors will learn about the importance of pollination and will receive seedlings for planting. Doors prizes will also be awarded.
