Event Description: 

Join Master Naturalist Lynn Kochiss and guest expert CFPA Education Director, Emma Kravet, for our series finale where Emma will be taking you on a deep dive into the fascinating  lives of honeybees. Participants will hear the story of honeybees and their intricate social structure, learn how honey is made, and participate in a honey tasting test! Children and their families will also get to make their own wildflower “seed bombs” to take home and distribute to help Connecticut pollinators. 

Please bring a water bottle, and prepare to get your hands dirty. 

All children must be accompanied by an adult for this program.
