Bees & Beekeeping: 101

Did you know Chicago is an AMAZING place for bees of all types?! Join Bike a Bee's Education Director Brittany Buckles to learn about honey bees, bumble bees, and how we can all help SAVE THE BEES!

This 1.5 hour class will cover the fascinating world inside of the honey bee hive and what beekeeping in Chicago is like. But we don't stop there... We believe saving the bees should begin with supporting native pollinators like mason bees, carpenter bees and bumblebees—including the federally endangered rusty patched bumble bee.

In this class there will be a presentation, a local honey tasting, all sorts of neat pictures and props, and an observation hive full of live bees! (safely behind glass, of course :)

We love all bees, and we want to help you fall in love, too!

Reserve your spot here before it’s filled!
