Description

"Honeybees serve a vital purpose in our environment as pollinators. Discover the world of the extraordinary honeybee and the mysteries of honey as we explore its many special qualities. Catch the buzz from local beekeepers who are eager to tell you their beekeeping stories – and sample their honey. During this hands-on workshop for families, learn how bees make honey and help us harvest honey from the Preserve’s apiary – right off the honeycomb!

The program also addressees the critical issue of “Colony Collapse” and the plight of honeybee populations across the globe.

Please note: participants should wear long sleeves, long pants, closed shoes, and tie up long hair. No perfume or insect repellent, and please do not eat bananas before the session as they remind honeybees of a fight pheromone which can disturb the hives."
