Help Us Educate 120+ Local Kids
Our goal is to educate 120-160 primary school-age children about bees and pollinators through a school holiday education program held at Illawarra Beekeepers facility in Sutherland. We plan to hold 6 x 3-hour sessions. During the session, students will learn about how pollinators provide an essential ecosystem service and ways they can help to protect bees and pollinators. They will learn about honey bees and how they differ from native bees and have an opportunity to dress in protective clothing and see inside a beehive, learn about harvesting honey from a Flow Hive versus a traditional hive. Participants will be shown how to make pollinator homes, and be given one, along with an information pack to take home to encourage home activities, like planting a flower garden, and encouragement to continue participating at the Club.
