Bee Hive Build

 

Sustainable Farm Tour

Teams will work together to combat the unprecedented dying off of honeybees by building a beehive. We will bring in a local expert to lead teams and the supplies needed to build a beehive. Once the beehives are completed, they will be donated to the local beehive keepers association and become the new home of a colony of bees! Includes discussions on fun facts about how a bee colony develops, how they make honey and why they are so helpful to the foodchain.
