Learn the Secrets of Bees

Buzz over to the Kalamazoo Valley Museum this month!

Whether you’ve been stung or not, you’ve got to admire the little winged wonders that gave mankind its first real candy — honey. And you can learn more about these prolific but threatened pollinators at The Secrets of Bees exhibit, running June 1—Sept. 30 at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum.

Visitors can study a plexiglass-covered observation hive, and children can dress up as bees and work in a giant “beehive.” They can also wear protective gear and work real wooden hives.

An art exhibit by Kalamazoo’s Ladislav Hanka, who collaborates with bees in making art, accompanies the Secrets exhibit. Classes on beekeeping, speakers talking about bee-related products, and other programs will also be featured.

Admission is free. For more information, visit kalamazoomuseum.org or call 373–7990.
