Zoo Class Part I

Today we had wonderful sunny weather for our first official class for zoo staff, who have graciously welcomed honeybees into their beautiful workspace! We're looking forward to more of these education opportunities at the Zoo! Above, Meredith talks through basic hive etiquette before the group goes into the hive.

Douglas Jones, Assistant Curator of Horticulture & Grounds, gets geared up for his trip into the hive.

Jennie talks to the group about basic bee biology and castes.
