School and Community Education

Part of our club’s mission is to educate the public about the importance of honey bees. We are available to staff information tables at community events and present to groups of all ages and sizes.

Have Fun Learning about Honey Bees

If you need a presentation or information table about honey bees, beekeeping or pollination, our members can help. We offer age appropriate presentations with fun, hands-on activities. Depending on the time of year, we can bring live honey bees to the event in an observation hive to provide an up close look at the bees. Crafts, coloring sheets and worksheets about honey bees can also be part of the presentation if desired.

Perhaps your group would like to learn more about pollinator gardening.  We have members who are both beekeepers and expert gardeners and can share their knowledge with your group in either a presentation or information table.
