Hands in the Bee Hive! With Q&A

Follow Amy Owen as she takes us inside the honeybee hive where she manages the honeybee hives at the Open Space Visitor Center on Coors. Learn about the structure of honeybee hives in two very different hives: Langstroth and Topbar hives. We will learn about honeybee communities, their social behavior, task specialization, and unique traits and qualities of apis mellifera. You will learn about the life cycle of honeybee hives, what is impacting their health these days and how you can support them in your backyard! This will be followed by a question and answer time. Bring your most burning honeybee questions!

Harvesting Consciousness: Food, Honeybees, & Watersheds with Q&A

Watch the documentary, “Harvesting Consciousness” about the interconnectedness of our Rio Grande watershed, honeybees and our food system. In 2018, Think Like a Bee created a series of Watershed documentaries, featuring local farmers and indigenous leaders. Learn what bees need for healthy habitat and how to think like a bee as you become more connected with your watershed!
