What Is Happening To Our Bees?

Event Details


February 25: The Coastal Discovery Museum will host David Arnal for this program about bees. Arnal is a local beekeeper with 27 years of experience. His 45-minute presentation will be on the intricacies of keeping bees and how humans have been able to manipulate this social insect to their benefit, including their importance to our agriculture and food supply. The lecture will also focus on the “Colony Collapse Disorder.” Arnal has more than 50 colonies under his care in the Lowcountry and is the President of the Beaufort-Jasper Beekeepers Association of South Carolina.
