Honey Bees: Home Is Where the Hive Is
An observation hive indoors and two field hives on the deck outside let you watch bees coming in and out of the hive, workers converting nectar into honey and storing it in the honeycomb cells, the queen laying eggs, and larvae growing and maturing. At certain times, you can even see beekeepers harvesting honey.
Come see the bees in action, learn more about them in our interactive displays near the hive, and see if you can spot the queen bee: She has a dot of paint on her back to help you find her. To learn even more, check Today at LSC to see if you can catch our interactive beekeeping program, Beekeeping: The Sweetest Science. It’s free with admission.
