EASTHAM – The life of honey bees and the use of using native plants to landscape yards will be the topics of two events later this month in Eastham.

The Cape Cod National Seashore’s Salt Pond Visitor Center will hold two programs as part of the Eastham Public Library’s One Book/One Town Series.

Beekeeper Dan Smith of Pamet Bees will present “Bees, Glorious Bees!” on October 14 at 1 p.m.

Attendees will learn the life story of the honeybee and details on the busy activity of bee colonies as they pollinate crops and make honey.

The second program “Adding Native Plants to Your Landscape” will be held the next day at 10 a.m.

Theresa Sprague, of Blue Flax Design, and Lindsay Strode, of Cape Organics, will provide a “how to” for attendees to use native plants in their yards to help improve wildlife habitat, while providing beauty and function.

Tips will be provided for screening and improving unappealing views, dealing with poor soils, drought and shade and for adding color and texture to landscaping.

The Salt Pond Visitor Center is located at the intersection of Route 6 and Nauset Road in Eastham.
