National Honey Bee Day
“Bee” sure to buzz on over to your AG Museum to celebrate National Honey Bee Day! During our normal 11am-5pm hours visitors can stop by our observation hive to welcome our new bee colony to the neighborhood. Afterwards you may choose to browse a mini-boutique of bee-themed merchandise from local Ventura County vendors, check out our newly-installed ‘Save the Pollinators’ art exhibit by C.R.E.W.’s Green Valley project, and explore our beautiful bee-friendly gardens. Enjoy a free plant giveaway from our Master Gardeners.
Then from 12pm-2pm join us for a special celebration of our pollinator pals and the role they play in supporting agriculture! Volunteers will help kids and adults make their own craft honey bee out of pipe cleaners or choose to craft a rolled-beeswax candle, while visiting beekeepers share fun facts and samples of delicious honey. From 1:00pm-1:45pm, families can participate in a honey bee-themed sing-and-dance-along. Kids will learn a few things about “Bee-havior” while earning some delicious honey sticks (with parental permission, of course)!
The Museum is open from 11am-5pm, admission is FREE, and our observational honey bee hive can be experienced on National Honey Bee Day or any other time you visit the AG!
