About the Program

This interactive program looks at the role of the beekeeper, as well as the role honey bees have in our food production through pollination. Students have an opportunity to be hands on with bee hive equipment, to suit up and look inside the hive, to hold a frame of honey bees, to identify the different types of bees in a hive, and to sample raw honey. Presentations are customized to the average age of the group for content and duration.

The field study option will take place in an educational bee yard (spring/summer), while the classroom program will include an observation hive (autumn/winter).
