This workshop is broken up into two sections, beginning with an overview of bees, including basic bee biology, hive dynamics, and the role of bees in the environment. Following this, we will open the hives for an in-hive experience. We will be looking at hive components such as honey, pollen, and propolis, and examining the life cycle of the bees from eggs to foragers. We will use smoke and other tools in the hive. Depending on individual levels of comfort, participants may hold a frame of bees for photos.
