National Honey Bee Day

Special activities all day long

World Honey Bee Day, previously known as Honey Bee Awareness Day, is an idea put together by beekeepers in the USA, who petitioned the USDA in 2009 for an official day to honor honey bees and beekeeping. A few years down the line, people across the globe are holding a date of observation every year. All day long from 11 am to 3 pm there will be special presentations taking place at Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center. Donations are appreciated. Check out for the full schedule for Sunday afternoon presentations. Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center is located 54 miles up the Gunflint Trail turn right on to Moose Pond Drive. Be sure to budget enough time to explore the network of nature trails crisscrossing Chik-Wauk’s 50-acre grounds located on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of the museum's many picnic benches and stay all day!
