- Field Trips/Visits
Honeybee Centre has offered fun, exciting and interactive field trips for over 15 years! We are a staple for many schools and day cares and continue to grow and expand to offer new and fresh programming for all ages!
Honeybee Centre has completely renovated our field trip facility and educational program. Our new program includes lesson plans that align with the teaching curriculum, interactive activities to accompany each lesson, and a brand new take-home wildflower seedling craft included with each field trip!
We are now accepting field trip bookings for the 2017 season. Morning and afternoon bookings available Monday to Friday.
