McCloud Honeybee Fest

Join us at McCloud Nature Park for our second annual Honeybee Festival, celebrating the importance of our pollinators!

Master beekeepers will be teaching the basics of backyard beekeeping, as well as offering opportunities to safely investigate a live hive. Park Naturalists will be leading games and craft activities for children, and families can purchase frozen yogurt from Orange Leaf (cash-only) — or hand-make your own ice cream! A variety of local honey samples will be available for sampling.
