SWAINSBORO, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - East Georgia State College will host its second honey extraction party on Sept. 9.

The event will be held in the lobby outside the college auditorium in the Luck Flanders Gambrell Building from 2:30-5 p.m.

Members of the college’s Beekeeping Club, students, faculty, staff and members of the community are invited to attend. Guests will get to learn about honey, how it is made by honeybees and collected by beekeepers.

The club expects to extract 70 pounds of honey at the event. During the first extraction in November 2019, around 22 pounds of honey was collected.

East Georgia State College maintains an apiary to increase awareness about honeybees and other pollinators, as well as their importance to the environment and how to protect both them and their habitats.
