It’s June, and that means that ABC Bees’ Field Days are back! If you’ve ever been curious about beekeeping, this is your chance to suit up and enter the world of the honey bee. This living classroom experience starts with a potluck lunch to meet your fellow beekeepers and get an introduction to the world of bees. Afterwards we open a few hives, see what the bees are up to and give you the opportunity to get in and feel your way around a beehive, and
maybe even eat some comb fresh honey!
The Field Days are scheduled around the seasonal behaviour of the bees; allowing you to really learn and keep up to date on how colonies progress throughout the seasons. Guides will bring in colonies with unique behavior; from supersedure and queen rearing to drone layers and newly caught swarms. For the new-bees, you can expect to see a queen bee, hatching babies, and maybe even the famous waggle-dance!
Again this year we are partnering with Heritage Park, Fairmont Palliser Hotel and Grow Calgary to offer a variety of urban locations and unique experiences in beekeeping this season.
Field Days are the perfect introduction to honeybees for first-timers, a great refresher for novice beekeepers and a blast for eager kids. To register visit:www.abcbees.ca/field-days/
