Sally Adams and Melanie Fleming to give a family-friendly presentation introducing the world of beekeeping! These local experts will teach us all about bees, elaborating on honey bee culture as it relates to life in the hive, life outside of the hive, and basic anatomy. Attendees will learn the roles of the three types of honey bees that make up the colony and products of the beehive which include honey, beeswax and propolis. In addition to their presentation Sally and Melanie will be offering free pollinator brochures, honey straws and crafts using beeswax! Complimentary refreshments will begin at 10am and the Bee Ladies will begin their presentation at 10:30am. In an effort to be more environmentally responsible, we’d like to encourage attendees to bring their own mugs for tea and coffee.

In 1995, this 2,100 acre nature preserve was dedicated to the public to serve as a natural buffer from urban development and a place for countless activities – from hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, to picnics, kayaking and more. The Greenway holds a wealth of cultural resources, including the historic Nation Ford Road, which was part of the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road, a pathway that was used by Native Americans, European settlers, Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers, traders and trappers for hundreds of years. In addition, the Greenway contains two circa-1800 log cabins, a dairy barn built in 1946 and the site of the Garrison-Webb gristmill for which Fort Mill is named. A part of Leroy Springs & Company,  Inc. and a site on the SC Ag + Art Tour
