Event Type Hudson River Estuary Exploration/Environmental Education Description Join Olana’s resident beekeeper and pollinator-advocate Chris Layman for this deeper look inside keeping bees and maintaining a healthy hive. During this workshop, participants will take a closer look at Olana’s hives to learn about the ins and outs of caring for their own bees at home. Discover what’s happening in the hive throughout the year, what is needed to keep bees healthily and sustainably, and how you can contribute to pollinator health in other ways. During the program, participants will get close to an active observation hive and should bring their own suit or bee veil if possible; limited bee veils will be made available during the program.
