Learn about honeybees from local beekeeper Jim Thaxter. He will bring in a glass-walled observation hive so we can watch the bees at work and see how they live. You'll learn about a year in the life of a hive, how bees benefit to people, how honey is harvested and processed, how to treat a sting and more. Jim has been keeping bees for about 40 years and says he learns something new from them each year. All ages.
