Recently, or first grade students enjoyed a field trip to   Up Yonda Farm, Environmental Education Center.

Students spent the day exploring the pond and learning about the impact that bees have on our ecosystem! They visited as a part of the farm's "Pollinator Program" for kids.

The program: What attracts the honeybee to the flower? These social insects work full time for the colony. See how pollination results in the production of honey. Watch the worker bees toil behind the glass in our observation hives. See if you can find the queen, and look for emerging young. You'll see some of the tools of beekeeping and learn why bees are so beneficial to all of us."
