Come look inside a honey bee hive from the comfort of your own home! Courtney and Sheldon from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Bee Lab will open a honey bee hive and show us what is happening inside, the different roles of honey bees and how they survive the winter.
How does honey get from the hive to the bottle on your table? We will look at processing honey and products made from beeswax. Courtney will show us a step-by-step demonstration of making lotion with beeswax, and provide a recipe so you can make it at home too!
Did you know there are hundreds of other bee species other than the honey bee? Courtney and Sheldon from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Bee Lab will show us some of the habitats of wild bees, the plants they use for homes, and show step by step instructions for making a wild bee hotel to put in your own backyard!
There are wild bees in your own backyard. Learn how to identify them, where they like to live and what they eat. Did you know we rely on pollinators for 35% of our food? Unfortunately, their populations are declining. Come discover how you can help save the bees!
