blue heron - 1886

The Blue Heron Nature Preserve and Whole Foods-Buckhead hosted a “Kid’s Day of Service,” featuring honeybees on Sept. 14. Parents and children learned about beekeeping, gardening and good environmental practices. Master beekeepers Julia Mahood, left, and son Noah Macey, explain the art of beekeeping at two hives on the preserve’s property.
