Library hosting bee-focused events in March

March is time to find out what all the buzz is about.

Warren Public Library is holding three March of the Bees events to celebrate the benefits of bees.

“March is all about the bees,” Adult Services Assistant Samantha Moore said. “All March long, there will be multiple programs focused on providing fun and thorough information about bees and what they do for us and our environment.”

The first program will be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday, March 6, and 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 8, and is about pollinator-friendly plants.

“You can learn how to make your own DIY seed pods,” Moore said. “The seed pods will contain a mix of annual and perennial flower seeds you can take home and plant in your garden.”

The Basics of Beekeeping will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 15.

“This event is an opportunity for potential beekeepers and those curious about bees to join us as we learn from two local beekeepers,” Moore said.

Finally, “Make Your Own Beeswax Wrap will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 25,” she said. “During this program, participants will make two beeswax food wraps to take home with them.”

The wraps “will be made from cotton, food-grade beeswax, rosin, and jojoba oil,” Moore said. “The wrap is a flexible yet tacky textile to use as a sustainable alternative to single-use plastic wrap.”

There are 15 spaces available for the program and pre-registration is required by calling the library at (814) 723-4650 or signing up at the main desk.
