Event Details

An interactive exhibition, “Bee-lieve it or Not! The Secret Lives of Honey Bees” provides a fun approach to learning about the amazing world of these incredible creatures. The exhibition includes life-size honey bee habitat furniture to hide in, an interactive exhibit gallery displaying text and graphics, and an educational video game about pollinators. While visiting, be sure to see the other pollinators that live in our native garden surrounding the nature center.
