CombCutters will come to your classroom or event to offer a first hand look at the fascinating world of bees! Bringing our observation hive, students will get to examine the inner workings of a honey bee community. They will learn basic bee biology, adaptations and behaviors. In addition, students will learn the importance of the honey bee & the threats they currently face. This workshop includes hands on and interactive activities meeting Common Core standards and can be adapted to any age level.
Monique and Rebecca each have over 7 years experience as Environmental Educators in public and private school systems as well as non profit and environmental programs. They started CombCutters as a way to preserve South Florida's bee population through hive relocation and education.
"We are excited to share our passion for bees with you and your students!"

Beekeeping 101 Course, May 20, 12-6pm:
Combcutters' Beekeeping 101 course will cover topics ranging from the intricacies of bee society & threats they face, to trouble shooting the hive. Participants will leave with a clear understanding of what it takes to start and maintain their own healthy hive, as well as a growing fascination with, and respect for, the honeybee - well on their way to becoming a Beek (bee-geek)!
This hands-on class will begin inside (out of the sun), but then we'll head outside to open some hives, giving participants a chance to get comfortable with bees and put their new-found knowledge to work, practice starting a smoker and handling beekeeping tools and equipment.
Cost for this course is $65. Snacks will be provided.
