Bee Happy Day!

Monday, August 30th 2021

Today was a celebration of all things bee at the reserve! There was something for all ages. For the adults a chance to talk to beekeepers from the Richmond & District Beekeepers' Association to learn more about the art of beekeeping.

For younger visitors there were lots of different activities such as making a bee puppet, colouring in, word searches, fact sheets, honey tasting and even making a candle from beeswax. Some of the adults enjoyed these too!

There was also a 'Bee Trail' with several bee clues hidden around the red route. The trail will stay in place for the remainder of the week, if you would like to have a go then pick up a quiz sheet from the Field Centre.

Our sincere thanks to Colonel Alistair and Alison for giving up their day for the event and to Elizabeth for preparing all of the activity sheets and making the 'bee trail'. Thank you too to all of the families who visited today in the 'liquid sunshine'!
