The Buzz About Bees and Wasps

May 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Buzz About Bees and Wasps

Join D.J. Haverkamp of Bedford Honeybee Service, to learn all about bees and wasps and their important role in the environment.

We’ll discuss their life cycle, nesting behavior, and threats to their existence as we approach World Bee Day on May 20. View live honeybees in a glass-walled hive to get a peek behind-the-scenes, and observe other nests for comparison.

This is a great introduction for anyone interested in bees, beekeeping, or protecting these precious pollinators.

Meet in the Visitor Center courtyard. This program involves a 1-mile hike and long periods of standing.

Please wear sun protection, bring water to drink, and wear comfortable closed-toed shoes. In case of bad weather, the program may be canceled or postponed; you will be notified by 5 pm the day prior.

Max: 20 people

Parking: $6 per vehicle
