Spring Beekeeping Activities for a Bountiful Honey Harvest | In-person class series

May 21 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Beekeepers anticipate the red maple bloom in February knowing that their beehives will soon be expanding the brood nest and growing the colony’s population back to full strength for the spring nectar flow. You can just imagine all the honey your bees will collect! But all of this Spring bounty means the bees will want to swarm. As the bees will likely issue out of the hive in a great mass and land on a nearby branch, your honey harvest ends up hanging in the trees!

June 30 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Plants come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Although we are often drawn to the biggest and showiest members of the plant kingdom, it is important to not forget the smaller species. Small plants often have big impacts on their environment, and this class will open your eyes to those plants! Join the Huntsville Botanical Garden as we explore the smaller plants you can find in the Garden, on the trails, and around your own home. You will learn some of the more common small plants, how to find them, and how they impact the world around us.
