Event description:

Celebrate National Honey Bee Day and learn about these had working insects. We all know that honey bees work hard to give us delicious honey but we often forget that they also provide us with versatile beeswax. Beeswax is used in many lip balms, skin moisturizers, candles, and is even used in cooking. Check out LICM's indoor bee hive and make a beeswax candle to take home.
