Join Landmark Park on June 24 at 9 a.m. in the Interpretive Center Auditorium for a Honey Extraction Workshop and learn all about bees and the important role they play in our lives. The workshop is hosted by the Wiregrass Beekeepers and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and is free with paid gate admission.
Guests will have a chance to watch as honey from the hives at Landmark Park is uncapped by hand, extracted from the comb and bottled. Honey will be on sale at the event and at Landmark Park while supplies last. For more info, contact the office at 334-794-3452.
