Pollination Power

Did you know you can thank a honey bee for a third of what you eat? Join beekeeper and storyteller Kim Lehman for this fun-filled program about our tiny friends the honey bees. Learn about the working of a hive and the division of labor of honey bees as social insects.

Pollination Experiment
Learn a simple pollination experiment you can do at home. Cut an apple in half through the center. You will see two stars. If this apple was fully pollinated there will be two seeds in each of the five pockets. Only count the seeds that are large and plump – seeds that could actually grow into an apple tree not the small or shriveled ones. By the way, apples are in the rose family.
