Youth and adults interested in bee keeping are invited to join 4-H Polk County Bee Keeping on October 11, 2014 from 10 a.m. – 12 noon.
4-H Polk County Bee Keeping will be meeting at the Chapter House at the Ankeny Izaak Walton League, located at 4857 NE 110th Ave, Elkhart, IA 50073
We plan to build a couple more hives, butterfly houses, mason bee houses, plant flowers in the spring, put in flower beds, how to properly keep honey bees, and lots of fun stuff.
4H registration is $30 a year per child plus $20 club fee (if your child is in k-3rd then they are a Clover Kid; 4th – 12th is 4H). To register and pay, you will need to do this with ISU Extension, either online (link here) or in person (1625 Adventureland Drive, Suite A, Altoona, Iowa 50009 (515) 957-5760
Hours: Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.). If you’re unable to pay a club fee, consider if sharing your tools, supplies, knowledge, etc. — we’ll work something out! Families who are curious about 4-H can attend Find-Out Night this Thursday evening: click here for more information .
