Nature offers several indicators of the transition from winter to spring. Many people notice spring's arrival with the first sighting of Sandhill Cranes or the tiny stinging nettles that begin to poke through the dirt. But for a select group of people on the Kenai Peninsula, it isn’t truly spring until the honey bees emerge from their hives after a winter dormancy.


On this Coffee Table the topic is mankind's most beloved stinging insect: the benevolent honey bee. HABAS founder and owner of Homer Girls Honey, Linda Gorman is the guest. Joining her is local expert of both birds and bees, Dave Erickson, along with Jason Davis, beekeeper and owner of Sweetgale Mead Works and Ciderhouse.
