BABA: Meet the Beekeeper – Summer 2024

August 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us at the Boston Nature Center (BNC) for a Meet the Beekeeper session each Saturday this summer.

You’ll have the opportunity to look at real beehives in their summer glory! You’ll be able to see how a beehive works, some beekeeping techniques, and, of course, honeycomb, raw honey, baby bees, and if you’re lucky, spot the elusive queen.

Whether you’re a novice, aspiring, or experienced beekeeper (a ‘beek’), BABA’s in-person Open Hives/Meet the Beekeeper workshops give everyone a chance to get close to bees and their hives, to learn and ask questions about honey bees, and to share stories and experiences.

Meet the Beekeeper sessions are held at Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center, 500 Walk Hill St., Mattapan, MA  02126.  Show up at the Center’s main building at 10am Saturday mornings through and including August 31, and spend the next two hours immersed in the bees’ magical world.

A Word of Caution
We will do our best to keep everyone safe, including providing everyone with beekeeping jackets & veils, and you should dress appropriately as well: long pants, socks, and closed-toe shoes are strongly encouraged.  Please be aware that, however protected you are, bees sting and, while it’s rare, visitors may be stung.

If weather is questionable, call the Nature Center for updates at (617) 983-8500.  And feel free to call Bill at (617) 388-7378 with any questions.
