Curious About Honeybees? Make a Beeline to UC Botanical Garden Sunday
Want to see a beehive up close and learn more about Apis mellifera, also known as honeybees? The Botanical Garden at the University of California at Berkeley will host a "Bee Explainer" at its observation hive on Sunday, Sept. 15.
If you've got a curiosity bee in your bonnet about honeybees, you might consider going to the Botanical Garden at UC Berkeley on Sunday.
The garden offering a "Bee Explainer" at 11:30 a.m. at its honeybee observation hive.
"Learn about the life cycle of these amazing bees with our Explainer," says a description on the garden's website. "The Observation Hive is located in the Tropical House."
Did you know that the honeybee, aka Apis mellifera, may be industrious but is not exactly a big producer on the individual level?
We flitted over to Google to ask about honeybee production and learned that quite a few people assert that a honeybee produces only 1/12th of a teaspoon in its lifetime, about the size of two drops of water.
In any case, we're reasonably confident that you can find out more about honeybees from a reliable source at the Bee Explainer on Sunday.
The Botanical Garden is located at 200 Centennial Drive.
