Plus it’s just plain fascinating to see how these little critters function! Class starts at 9:00 am.and we work through lunch so bring some brown bag munchies for lunch time. Iced tea and water will be available. Class ends around 3:30PM Wear closed shoes and no perfumes/aftershaves as we will be working in the bee yard for 1 1/2 hours. If you have a bee suit bring it. If not we will provide you with one. Refund Policy: Less than 24 hours no refund.
