Munchin' on the Preserve: All About Beekeeping

August 22, 2018 from 11:00am to Noon

Wednesday, August 22 at 11:00 AM

Join COL for a summer lunch and learn series, Munchin' on the Preserve. One Wednesday each month during the summer join us outside at the covered picnic area at Chikaming Township Park and Preserve to learn about different and important conservation topics!

Enter the world of bees with local beekeeper, Charmi Keranen! Charmi will talk about the process of beekeeping, hive life cycles and what the bees need to make it through winter. She will also be bringing some of her local honey for us to taste!

Charmi Keranen is a Michiana-area backyard beekeeper of six years.  She keeps five to eight hives in her garden on one-acre of land in Northern Indiana.   In the summer months, some of her bees can be found educating adults and children alike via an observation hive at the Fernwood Botanical Garden’s Nature Center.   An avid gardener, hiker, brewer, and poet, Keranen incorporates bees and bee activities into her daily routine.
