    NC Museum of Natural Sciences at Whiteville


    The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Whiteville invites you to “Meet Me at the Museum: Saturday Explorations,” a free family-friendly science and nature program offered the third Saturday of every month. This month, the museum welcomes Dylan Williams, Executive Director of Toxic Free NC. Did you know that honeybees provide pollination for 1 of every 3 bites of food we eat? William will present his program, “Keep the Hives Alive!” Saturday, August 19 at 1:30 p.m. This fun and educational workshop includes interactive activities for kids; a take home ‘action toolkit’ full of materials and information to make your backyard a haven for honeybees and other native pollinators. 


    Williams is a graduate of UNC-Charlotte with a BS in Geology and a BA in Spanish, he is currently completing his Masters in Sustainable Development with a concentration in Non-Profit Management. Williams specializes in children’s health and safety. He hosts workshops across North Carolina to promote effective alternatives to toxic chemicals in the places where we live, learn and play. This free program is for all ages. No registration is required.
