Are you interested in honey bees, their health and honey production? Join bee experts from the Department of Agricultural Resources and UMass Amherst at the state’s first working apiary. This event is opened to the public, suited for most ages and will provide education on the basics of honey bee biology, hive management and disease/parasite prevention. State Apiary Inspectors will be present to give attendees a tour of a live working honey bee hive and answer any questions on topics related to honey bee health and hive husbandry. Participants must bring protective clothing as it will not be provided and is necessary before entering the apiary and are asked to wear closed toe shoes.
