This is a one hour class that explores honeybees and the important role they play in our lives and environment. We'll also discuss the plight they are currently experiencing (mass die-offs due to pollution, climate change, etc.) and what we can do to help them. Patrons will get to see beekeeping tools and equipment such as a smoker, veil, beekeeper's suit, and hive box up-close, plus large glossy pictures of honey bees, and a frame of live honeybees that will be safely secured in an observation hive!
