Get up close and personal with the bees of Wave Hill! Observe bee behavior in the gardens, then suit up in a hat and veil to peek inside a hive filled with 50,000 honeybees.

Search for worker bees, drones, brood (baby bees), and maybe even catch a glimpse of the elusive queen. Senior Horticultural Interpreter Charles Day leads this fascinating foray into the world of the honeybee. 

This event is appropriate for curious adults, and kids aged 14 and older who are accompanied by an adult.
