If you want to see nature’s most precious pollinator hard at work then come experience the hustle and bustle of a hive with Bee Downtown!
This two-hour adventure includes a tour of one of our 5 Community Apiaries locations to learn about the inner workings of a hive during a hands-on-class. During the class, you will wear an official beekeeper’s suit, work the hives, taste honey fresh from the comb, and witness one of nature’s finest social communities. As bees buzz all around, you will learn just how vital these insects are to our local and global ecosystem.
Going on a Bee Downtown tour is an immersive and educational experience unlike any other! Peering into a hive and seeing the secret life of bees makes for a great date, family outing or individual activity, so pick a tour date and join us in experiencing nature’s most fascinating and indispensable creatures: honeybees.
And to remember a day well spent with our busy bees, we will send you home with a jar of Bee Downtown honey!
These Tours will start at 10:30 AM and once you have completed your purchase you will be sent an email that includes parking information and a map of the meeting location.
