Did you know that you can keep bees in your backyard? Even small urban yards (or roof tops) can play host to a hive of honey bees, and those who tend them can enjoy honey, beeswax, pollen and of course, the bees themselves. In this three-hour workshop, you will learn what it takes to keep a busy, productive hive of bees happy.

Boston Nature Center, Mass Audubon
Sep 19th 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
One of the greatest challenges to beekeeping in Massachusetts is getting colonies through the winter. Last year Eastern MA beekeepers lost over 50% of their colonies over the winter months; the bees (and beekeepers) need all the help they can get.
