The Honey Lab by UC Davis Presents (California Honey Festival)
The Honey and Pollination Center has partnered with the City of Woodland to create a day all about bees and honey--California Honey Festival.
This festival was created to help develop an interest in beekeeping by the younger generation as well as to educate the public to support honey and their beekeepers. Bees are also under threat by disease, climate change. It is important for the community to appreciate and understand the importance of bees as our master pollinators and how important they are to our food diversity here in the United States..” A festival celebrating the honeybee.
