Please note: The time for this event has been changed from 7:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Early settlers kept bees and used honey to sweeten their food, but beekeeping is still an active and important tradition in the Mammoth Cave region. Join folklorist Josh Chrysler and special guests, Edmonson County beekeepers Sherry Sanders and Nathan Priddy, for a discussion about beekeeping in this part of the state on Thursday, August 20, at 7:00 p.m. at Mammoth Cave National Park’s amphitheater. Topics will include changes over time and the practice’s significance in the community and larger ecological system.
