BEE Cool Club
Direct Involvement Recreation Teaching (DIRT)
are super excited at the success of our
Bee Cool Club-
the club that teaches youth about beekeeping and promoting healthy environments for all of us.
Focusing on bees, their needs, and how we can help provide the abundant environment they thrive in, this program has engaged and empowered youth in monthly workshops designed around everyday things we can do to help the planet and pollinators.
Skills we covered in our hands-on apprentice beekeeping program:
How to maintain and care for a successful, healthy bee colony
Making observations and discerning hive needs
How to set up bee hives, and picking an ideal apiary location at home
What do beekeepers do?
