The Buzz on a Beekeeper – For Kids!

Free

June 26 @ 10:30 am

3308 S. Stafford St.
Arlington, Virginia 22206

Honeybees are important pollinators. There would be no chocolate without honeybees! 
Kids are invited to learn about being a beekeeper, Sunday, June 26 at 10:30 am. 

  • Extension Master Gardener, Urban Agriculture Certified, and beekeeper Maria Velikonja will talk about her life as a beekeeper. She will have her bee suit, a hive with frames (no bees!), and a small hand smoker. 
  • Extension Master Gardeners Anne Reed and Debbie Keefe will provide information about other pollinators we depend on.
  • Photo op with a surprise visitor will be offered! 

Due to space limitations, participants are limited to 15 kids – first come, first served.
