Science Works logo6/19/2017

Did you know that honey bees will make an estimated 10 million foraging trips to make one pound of honey? This involves visiting about two million flowers, and the flight distance is equivalent to two trips around the world! Also, this honey can still be edible after thousands of years! Join Sarah Red-Laird, aka Bee Girl, June 19th – 23rd at ScienceWorks Hands-on Museum in Ashland, OR, for an adventure deep into the amazing lives of our bees. Campers will visit hives, catch and observe native bees, participate in citizen science, learn to waggle dance, taste honey from around the world, build pollinator habitat, understand how pollination fits into our food system, and learn how even the littlest bee lovers can “bee” part of the solution in helping our pollinators thrive.
