The Common

Some people don’t like bees, but without them, we wouldn’t have many of the foods we eat or the flowers we enjoy. Meet a real beekeeper when she brings a small hive for us to observe. Learn about the life cycle of bees, and take a look at some of the amazing materials we get from them.

Do you love animals? Join us the third Saturday of every month for Critter Day, fun live animal programming. Learning about animals helps children understand their connection to all living things.
