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
To learn everything there is to know about honey bees but most importantly, native bees. Having an apiary in your backyard is very trendy right now and careful consideration must be taken to protect native bees and their habitat. This program will talk about the do's and don'ts when considering taking up bee keeping as a hobby. There are 800 native bee species found in Canada and as we continue to increase our honey bee populations, there is some habitat loss for our native species.

Students will have an opportunity to look for pollen cells, honey cells, queen cells, drones, and honey bees just to name a few. It is a hands on program where kids will be able to try on a suit, look at the beekeeper tools and see what the world looks like as a beekeeper. At the end of the program, your kids will have an opportunity to taste some honey and pollen and look at some tools beekeepers use to collect the precious golden nectar.
