Walkin’ and Talkin’ ‘Bout the Bees

A Mare Island event during the 22nd Annual San Francisco Bay Flyway Festival.

Walkin’ and Talkin’ ‘Bout the Bees, Mare Island Preserve
Beekeeper and an owner of Bay Area Bee Company in Vallejo,
Rokas Armonas, has been beekeeping since his teens. With a natural, hands-on and holistic approach, he cares for his hives with an eye toward organic, bee-friendly, human friendly and environmentally friendly methods. Join Rokas for a conversation about honeybees and related issues as you walk together to view actual hives on the Preserve.

Things to be aware of: half-mile hike one way on paved and dirt surfaces with short climb up a grassy hillside; wear comfortable and appropriate footwear, sunscreen, insect protection; please remain outside fenced-off hive area; Rokas will explain as he goes and carry examples to the fence for viewing and discussion; your participation is voluntary and you assume full responsibility for yourself; keep this in mind, if you are sensitive to honeybee stings (should one occur). Meet at the Preserve visitor center.
