“Bees are fascinating creatures, said Kier, but then I’ve always been sort of a science geek.” 

Now starting his third summer tending honey bees, he will share his knowledge with aspiring beekeepers in a presentation set for Wednesday, April 17, 3:30 p.m. at the Ada Public Library.  It’s Beekeeping 101 and he’ll bring some equipment so the audience will get a hands-on experience.
