Meet A Beekeeper On Governors Island

October 14 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm UTC+0


Have you ever seen the magic that goes on inside a beehive?  Immerse yourself in this rare opportunity to learn the secrets and wonders of bees. Meet the gentle worker bees making honey, see firsthand that bees are gentler than you may have imagined, and if you’re lucky, say hello to the Queen Bee! Led by a Bee Conservancy’s staff beekeeper, this hive dive will give an up close and personal view of colony life in TBC’s Bee Sanctuary at Governors Island. It will also highlight the bee world beyond honey bees, who only make up 8 of the world’s 20,000 bee species! Learn about cavity nesters, ground nesters, and conservation steps you can take to help all bees and their habitats.

You will leave the experience with a deeper appreciation for the tireless and impactful work of bees, which pollinate 1 in 3 bites of food we eat and 80% of the world’s flowering plants.
