Introduction to Honey Bees for Child and Adult Partners

INTRODUCTION TO HONEY BEES FOR CHILD AND ADULT PARTNERS

Spring 2022

If I were a Honey Bee, how many eyes would I have?  How would I breathe?  Where would I carry pollen?  How would I communicate with my hive mates?  Meet a Friends’ beekeeper to investigate these and other fascinating aspects of Honey Bee life.  Then help the beekeeper open a hive and wonder anew as you observe the bees at work.  Beekeeping suits, veils and gloves provided.
