Mighty Acorns: Buzz Little Bees and Help Our Little Garden Grow

Celebrate spring and learn all about our unsung heroes, the bees.  Did you know that most honeybees in a hive are girls or that bees are insects?  Seeing bees at work is magical and we will spend some great time outside looking for all types of pollinators in the museum’s garden.  A nature project along with a lesson about bees and honey will have your Mighty Acorn super excited about spring!
