Kids and Bees January 2018

Fwd: Exciting news for students in the Reno area! The American Beekeeping Federation will be holding the 2018 North American Beekeeping Conference and Tradeshow January 9-13, 2018, in Reno, Nevada at the Grand Sierra Resort, and we would love to meet you! From 9:00 am until noon on Friday the 12th we are hosting a "Kids and Bees" event to engage the local community. We think this program would be a great fit for your students, and we would be honored if you would join us.

This no-charge educational program has been a traditional featured event with the American Beekeeping Federation conference for over 20 years, and is a “don’t miss” opportunity for school groups, home schooled kids, scouts, and clubs. Kids and their teachers or parents can expect a room full of hands-on exhibits under the themes of, “The Art of Beekeeping,” “The Science of Beekeeping,” “The World of Beekeeping,” and “The Future of Bees: It’s Up to You!” They will learn about the art and science behind beeswax, honey, pollination, ultraviolet bee vision, and so much more! Students will make their way through each station, engaging with beekeepers and Honey Queens from around the US, and in activities that will harness their senses and imaginations.

Please share this information with your community, space is limited - but it's our goal to bring as many students as we can to learn about our bees!

We would love it if you would help us spread the word, and share on your social media outlets, newsletters, etc.

Please give us a call by the end of the week if you have any questions, or would like help signing up larger groups.
