One-Hour Enrichment Experience/Summer Field Trip

Amazing Bees




Amazing Bees!
Dates and times below
Suggested ages: 6 -10 year olds

Come to the Arboretum for the sweetest summer experience ever held at the new Tashjian Bee and Pollinator Discovery Center! Explore the world of the honey bees, bumble bees, leaf-cutter bees, sweat bees, mason bees, and more, and find out how they achieve their status as champion pollen movers. Without their work, our grocery stores and gardens would look sadly different. Search for bee diversity in the Bee Center's garden for pollinators, explore the pollinator exhibits, and get a taste of the honey bees' sweet treasure from the hive.
NOTE: Adults should plan to attend with their child. Non-participating siblings are welcome to attend at no charge if they are not a distraction to the group. Siblings who participate in the activities should also be registered.
Limit 40 students, Tashjian Bee and Pollinator Discovery Center
