Beekeeping Basics for Juniors

Have you ever wanted to learn about beekeeping? Well, here is a great opportunity to do just that. This four-part very hands-on program will let you experience the fascinating world of the honey bees. You will learn about their hives, sustainable beekeeping, life cycle of bees, products produced by a hive and install a new colony in their new home. Each session will focus on a different aspect of beekeeping while providing participants with hand-on experiences with bees, hives, and hive production.

This 4 part program for youth ages 11-18 is at the Currituck Extension Center, 120 Community Way, Barco NC, 27917 on March 31, April 11, April 14 and May 5 from 10:00am to 12:00 pm. We will be working with and around bees and their hives during all sessions and we will provide appropriate safety gear during the classes. Full enrollment in 4-HOnline is required for all participants. There is no cost for this program, but space is limited.

For more information or if you need accommodations for persons with disabilities please contact Sherry Fischlschweiger at (252) 232-2262 or by email at no later than 10 business days before the program date.
