Whiteville is a bee city, but exactly what does that mean? And why is there a need protect bees? 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 the Columbus County Beekeepers Association, Erika Elkins and Rocky Boswell, President. They will present their program, “The Life of Bees,” May 20, at 1:30 p.m. Learn how to be a beekeeper and join the association. Take a close look at hard-working bees in an observation hive. Learn about their lives, the dangers they face and what we can do to help.
The Columbus County Beekeepers Association is a chapter of the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association whose purpose is to encourage better beekeeping methodology, to reach a common understanding regarding problems and solutions; improve purposes relating to honey bees and beekeeping exclusively for its members and the public.
Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. For more information, please call the museum at 910-914-4185 or Whiteville@naturalsciences
