National Honey Bee Day 2011


PennApic & PBBA members manned an educational display at Gifford Pinchot State Park on National Honey Bee Day. A steady stream of visitors throughout the day confirms that public interest in honeybees is still strong. We thank PBBA members throughout the state who participated in various National Honey Bee Day festivities. Programs were held in York County and Jennings State park (Butler County). Pictures will be added when they become available.
