Native Bees In Schools Program
Native Bees In Schools Program (Ipswich Region)
Australian Native Stingless Bees enable children to safely Interact, engage, learn and experience close up the social behaviours of Social Native bees, promote an awareness of the impact of human activity on the environment and the interdependence of living things.
As an added bonus the bees will pollinate the gardens and your school or Kindergarten And you will be aiding the conservation of the native bee. The keeping of stingless bees is easy and does not require any special expertise, equipment or license. we will provide checkups and maintenance as required, and engage the students for such things.
The hive needs to be located in shade, the bees will forage in the garden darting back and forth laden with pollen & Nectar. Your Students will be able to remove the lid and view inside through the acrylic view panel provided (with teacher guidance) so they can see the daily behaviours at play in this very complex social colony
Ripley Valley Native Bees have sold hives to schools, Daycare Centers, Kindergartens, Retirement Villages and numerous backyard gardeners.
we are now moving to get a Program Started for Schools, Daycare's, Kindergartens etc in the Ipswich Region so that we can empower our next generations to help protect our precious Native Bees, through hands on demonstrations and discussions that will engage even the youngest of our wildlife warriors
If you wish to inquire about suitability and procurement of your very own Hive Please don't hesitate to contact us on 0423 881 558 , so we can discuss a program suitable for your needs
I look forward to discussing the possibility of working together in the future and educating the children of your school.
