It’s the grand opening of the new exhibit focusing on honey. The exhibit shows how it’s made, the history, and presents the vital roll honeybees play in northern California.
80% of all queen bees in the US originate here in the northern California and are vital to the agriculture of the region and the broader food supply. With the new exhibit the honeybee discovery center hopes to bring attention and an opportunity for education for the public.
Carolina Burreson - Vice President Board of Directors Honeybee Discovery Center - “our visitors can look forward to learning about the history of honey and how it’s made, and how it’s extracted, and a lot of visitors really enjoy looking at the observation hive where they can see honey bees at work. And we also have a wonderful microscope where we can actually magnify the honey bees so that the visitors can see what a honey bee looks like up close”
The Honey exhibit will run now through the end of the year and is open to the public on the first Friday and Saturday of every month. Friday hours range from 3-6pm and Saturday 10am to 1pm.
