*Bees at the Nursery

*Bees at the Nursery

We will be installing a hive at the nursery this spring and want to share all the bee activity! This is a fun talk to help understand what bees do to have a happy and productive hive. Learn how they "talk" to each other, how they build, clean up, raise babies and swarm. Then, look at the parts of a real beehive, see the tools beekeepers use and the flowers and trees beekeepers and orchardists plant to feed the bees all year.
