Our School Field Trip Program

Honeybee Centre has offered fun, exciting and interactive presentations for over 15 years! We are a staple in the community and continue to grow and expand to offer new and fresh programming for all ages!

Honeybee Centre has completely renovated our Honeybee Classroom and educational program. Our new program includes education about bees, beekeeping, pollination & environmental stewardship, interactive activities to accompany each lesson, and a take-home, bee-friendly, wildflower seedling craft included with each visit!

The Field Trip

Objectives:

  • To bring the amazing world of the honeybees to the forefront of education through hands on activities and explorations.
  • To showcase the relationship between humans and honeybees.
  • To feature the honeybee as an integral species in our food web.
  • To explore the honeybee and other pollinators as a keystone species in Earth's ecosystem.

Our program will educate on four main topics:

Children Will:

Each field trip includes a take-home bee friendly wildflower seedling craft that they can plant in their back yard, and a pre and post package for educators to reinforce lessons at Honeybee Centre and an incredible on-site interactive experience.
