Adopt a Bee
Please help our hive thrive!
he observational beehive at the Arboretum started out in May 2010 with about 7000 bees. The hive flourished and the population quickly tripled under the guidance of our local bee consultant Joe Lelinho.
Like all of the other animals in our Stone House collection, the bees need to be properly maintained. For example, the hive needs to be cleaned out once it becomes overfilled with honey and comb. The bees need food in the winter when nectar sources disappear. So why not adopt some bees to help us help them? After all, they worked hard all spring and summer by pollinating our neighborhood flowers and trees.
You can adopt some of our bees as follows:
* 100 bees for $25
* 250 bees for $50
* 600 bees for $100
* 1000 bees for $150
Your name (individual or group) will appear on a sign posted near the hive. Your adoption donation period runs for 1 year and is tax deductible.
