Classroom Visits

During the beekeeping season (May through September) we can visit classrooms with our honeybee observation hive. Students can try to tell the difference between a worker bee, a drone bee and the queen bee and search for the queen bee and watch her lay eggs, They can see how honeybees store their food and see developing bee larvae. We are also able to visit during Fall and Winter to give short presentations about beekeeping, offer honey tasting and explain beekeeper tools and equipment.

For schools with gardens, we can lead a native pollinator safari where students hunt for native bees, wasps and other insects which also pollinate many plants and crops.

Schools with a budget for programs are asked to pay $200.00 per visit. An extra $75 is required for travel over 10 miles.
