Public to learn the state of bees at Green Drinks

CRYSTAL LAKE – The public is invited to Green Drinks McHenry County from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Duke’s Alehouse & Kitchen, 110 N. Main St.

Doug Hawthorne, vice president of the Northern Illinois Beekeepers Association, will speak about bees: What is the state of bees in McHenry County?

Hawthorne has been a beekeeper for 11 years. He knows enough to recognize a honeybee from a wasp but feels that he has only touched on the knowledge available on raising bees. On the other hand, he has raised honey each and every year – enough to cover out-of-pocket expenses. Recently, he has begun learning how to make beeswax candles.

There will be an information table set up, and participants are welcome to bring information about their green products and services each month to share. Additional parking is available at the train station.

To be added to the group’s email list, send a note to GreenDrinksMC@gmail.com or “like” the group on Facebook, www.facebook.com/GreenDrinksMcHenryCounty.
