Is your child or teen a nature-lover? Give them the ultimate experience of seeing the fascinating world of a honeybee colony up close in this intimate, discovery-oriented exploration of honeybees in their natural environment. We will provide a basic overview of honeybee life, observe and act out the infamous waggle dance, watch young bees being born, try to spot the queen as she lays her eggs, and taste honey straight from the comb! Children ages 7 and up are welcome to participate, and will be provided with a protective veil. Parents welcome too! Please wear or bring long pants, sleeves, closed-toed shoes and bring kids’ sized gardening/work gloves if you have them.
This class will be led by Sadie Richards and Jacqueline Beaupre, both experienced beekeepers and educators who have experience opening hives with youth of all ages.
