Many thanks to Peyton for sharing the link below! Peyton attended a summer camp and one week's theme was nature. Peyton was asked to do research on bees and she was so excited because her favorite insect is the honeybee! Peyton found our club's website helpful and emailed us to share a great resource she found while researching for her camp project. Thank you again Peyton for your email and honeybee enthusiasm.

and the DGIF Guide for Electric Fencing for Bears.
