The Baton Rouge Botanic Garden Foundation will host a FREE Garden Discoveries series event for families with children ages 7-10 at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 12, 2021 at the Main Library at Goodwood led by Kevin Langley of the Capital Area Beekeepers Association. Attendees can register for limited in-person seating or attend virtually on Facebook Live!
Children will be able to look inside part of a real beehive, dress up in junior beekeepers’ outfits, hats and gloves, and learn how bees collect the honey and do their waggle dance to let other bees know where the good pollen is. Families will walk around the Botanic Garden with Buzzy the Bee and the Beekeepers in search of flowers with pollen and real bees! And, at the end of the hour, they will taste three local honeys and select their favorite flavor.
To attend in-person: To comply with social distancing guidelines, in-person seating is limited and registration is required to attend. Registration is available on this webpage or call 225-231-3750 for registration assistance. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
