Free Bee & Pollinator Celebration: June 23
Free honey tasting, meet the beekeepers, and learn all about making your garden bee-friendly, or even keeping bees yourself, on June 23, 2012.
Oh yes, it’s a free bee freebie!
So no, you don’t get free bees, but when you buzz down to the bee celebration and pollinator awareness day at the Open Space Visitor Center you do get to taste honey, see a bee hive, feed a butterfly, see and learn about pollinator-friendly plants you could grow in your garden, and meet Albuquerque beekeepers to find out how you could do it yourself. We’re told there will be children’s activities, and (at 3 pm) a screening of the film Queen of the Sun about why bees are disappearing.
- When: Saturday June 23, 2012
- Time: 10 am to 5 pm
- Where: Open Space Visitor Center (see the full schedule at the link)
- Cost: Free!
This is part of New Mexico Pollinator Week, an initiative to raise awareness of pollinator species vital to our food systems and economy. We love the bees here at Albuquerque on the Cheap, so kudos to all, including the Albuquerque Beekeepers Group which is a great resource for anyone interested in urban beekeeping.
Open Space Visitor Center is located at 6500 Coors Boulevard NW (between Montano and Paseo del Norte).
