Talk: What's All the Buzz About Bees?

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

bees-gwu.pngHive, the Museum’s 2017 Summer Block Party installation, has got our brains buzzing about bees. Compare the Hive installation to an actual observation hive (buzzing with live bees!) and investigate the design evolution of modern man-made beehives with Kayla Schwartz, beekeeper at George Washington University Undergraduate Honeybee Research Lab.  Explore the challenges, as well as some surprising advantages, of urban beekeeping and efforts to protect and encourage native bees and pollinators.

Learn more about urban beekeeping and what you can do to help honey bees and native bees with Bees in the City, available in the Museum Shop, which will be open before the program.
