A BEE PRESENTATION
FOR YOUR GROUP!
Montgomery County Beekeepers Association has an outreach program for students of any age.
Would you like a volunteer BEEKEEPER from the Montgomery County Beekeepers Association to speak to your group? Our speakers can bring lots of visual aids and even LIVING BEES. Bees are very important pollinators (the most delicious foods we eat need honey bees to grow), but most people don't get a chance to see them upclose, or to learn about their fascinating, busy lives. Do you know how much honey one honey bee can produce in its entire lifetime? Only 1/10th of a teaspoon of honey! So where does all the honey come from?? Did you know bees travel up to 2 miles from their home to bring nectar, water, and pollen back to their colony? Did you know that worker bees have special 'baskets' on their hind legs they use to collect pollen? Did you know when the queen lays an unfertilized egg, it becomes a male bee (called drones)?
This is just a taste of the fun things to learn about honey bees. And speaking of 'taste', how about trying some honey, straight from the hive!
