The Wild and Wonderful World of Honeybees NEW

Wednesday, June 16, 10am–noon
Demonstration Garden, limited to 12 people

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to keep a hive of honeybees? Humans have been fascinated by the honey bee for hundreds of thousands of years. We’ve been keeping them for 10,000 years! In this class you’ll have a n opportunity to observe honeybees and learn how to set up your own apiary. Along the way, you’ll learn what you can do to help honeybees and pollinators make it in our current environment. The class is designed for those considering beekeeping as a hobby or who want to know more about attracting and supporting honeybees and other pollinators.

We are happy and excited to begin hosting in-person workshops this Spring. In order to follow required safety guidelines our in-person workshop attendees are required to follow familiar COVID mitigation protocols. In-person workshop attendees must:

  • Maintain six feet of distance between people at all times. Limited to 12 participants to allow for social distancing.
  • Wear face coverings (cloth or paper masks, cloth bandanas, etc.).
  • DO NOT participate if you are sick or have experience symptoms of COVID (frequent cough, fever, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and recent loss of taste or smell) or if you or someone you have been in contact with has been diagnosed with COVID-19, within 2 weeks of the event.
