“Bee Biology and Natural History”

Event Details

Coastal Discovery MuseumThe Coastal Discovery Museum will host local bee keeper David Arnal for this program on “Bee Biology and Natural History” on May 16 at 3 p.m. The presentation will focus on the two most commonly asked questions by the non-beekeeper. #1 What is happening to the bees? #2 What can I do to help the bees? He will attempt to answer these questions through the lens of science with a particular focus on Bee Biology and the Natural History of the Honey Bee, including its introduction into North America right here in Beaufort County SC at the Spanish settlement of Santa Elena in 1564.
