It's hard to bee-
To celebrate National Honey Bee Day, Belle Isle Nature Center will host its third annual Bee Fest on Aug. 18.
The event will focus on beekeeper talks, local honey tasting, demonstrations, and lessons in the art of maintaining a bee-friendly garden. Singer-songwriter Joe Reilly will perform as a pairing to Joseph Ferraro's macro photography of bees at work and chalk artist David Zinn will create buzzworthy works on site. Children are also invited to partake in a bee costume parade and Rochester-based Harding Honey will offer locally sourced beeswax products.
Bee Fest will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is free for all ages. For information, visit belleislenaturecenter.org.
