Public Service Opportunity

Post by specialkayme » Tue Sep 08, 2020 8:40 pm

A pre-school teacher in Greensboro is looking for someone to visit her class of ~5 youngsters to talk about the importance of honeybees (outside, with a mask, while maintaining social distancing). She'd prefer if someone could bring an observation hive to show to the little ones. Specifics can be worked out directly with her. If you're interested, message me or drop me an email (smokeycreekbeefarm@gmail.com) and I'll pass your information along.

It wound up being 3 classes, about 15 3-4 year olds, almost all wearing masks, at an outdoor "classroom" area that got to see bees in the observation hive and the large bee photographs. I'm not sure how much they got out of it, but perhaps there will be a future beekeeper in the group.
