Up to 200 complimentary programs are available for the 2021-2022 school year to teachers across the Basin on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking. It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator.
As with the previous school year, we have a COVID-19 policy in place for the 2021-2022 school year. Teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs this year.

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).
About the Community Educator
Ron is a beekeeper based in Revelstoke, starting out as a hobby beekeeper and transitioning into operating a commercial beekeeping operation in 2018, which today has 75 hives. Ron has always had a passion for teaching and sharing information on a variety of subjects, and now shares his beekeeping experiences through social media, as well as through introductory workshops and hosting school classes at his bee yard.
"Excellent presentation. I will hopefully do this program again when all of the students can take turns using the protective suits as only 5 students could use them due to COVID." - Janette Vickers
