The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

All pollinators are important, but there is a special place in our hearts for honeybees. Learn about this tiny insect that makes important contributions to our lives. And since we use bee products – wax and honey – try your hand at making a rolled beeswax candle. You can also make sustainable food wrap out of beeswax. Then for a special treat, try different types of honey. Can you tell which flowers the bees pollinated?
