Winter Sleeps - Bees

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday February 1

6:30 PM  –  8:00 PM

Honeybees and our native bees have different methods for surviving winter, from shivering to generate heat in a colony to chillin' in hollow plant stems. 

Pennsylvania Master Naturalist and apiarist, Nancy Thorne, will share her knowledge of how bees make it through our winters and why it's important to not cleanup your landscape in the fall.

This is the second of our five-part "Winter Sleeps" virtual series.  Register for the others on our Event page.

This is a "Pay What You Wish" presentation with donations benefiting Penguin Court and its education/outreach programs. Thank you for considering a donation!
