Field Trip: Learn basic biology of honey bees & important steps in working a hive… at BeeWeaver
School is a little different this year… so each week we’re posting an idea for a Houston-area (socially distanced, parent led) field trip. In each post, we have some resources to read before your trip, details on each stop and parking/driving instructions.
In this trip, study nature, learn the basic biology of honey bees and the important steps in working a hive of bees… at BeeWeaver Honey Farm!

Learn the basic biology of honey bees and the important steps in working a hive of bees. For a small fee, BeeWeaver has public and private tours available.
Guest are protected in the screened in observation deck and the beekeeper explains the tools and practices of beekeeping… and the biology of the honey bee and parts of a hive.
The tours are family friendly.
Thank you Ashley for suggesting this trip. We have not gone yet, but her family went and highly recommends it!
