A CHILDREN'S PROGRAM - THE LIFE OF BEES!!-On August 8th from 10:00 till 11:30, children can come to the Williamsburg Botanical Garden to learn all about the beautiful and important honey bee. Did you know that of the 900 THOUSAND kinds of insects that we know of, only ONE insect makes food for humans? The food is honey, and the insect is the honey bee. Pam Burton and her friends from the Colonial Beekeepers Association will help you find out how a bee colony gathers its food, pollinates OUR food, raises its baby bees, survives cold winters, and swarms to a brand new home. This presentation will be held at the Williamsburg Botanical Garden (inside the Freedom Park Interpretive Center if it's raining), and is open to the public. Registration is required. The program is free. However, a donation of $5 to support the Williamsburg Botanical Garden at Freedom Park would be appreciated. This event is part of the Williamsburg Botanical Gardens Children's Programs 2015, sponsored by the Williamsburg Botanical Garden. For further information about this program or to register for it, please contact Sherry Patterson at sherrypat2@yahoo.com . Come join us….we promise you won't get stung!
