Honey Bees

at Butterfly Pavilion

Butterfly Pavilion is now home to 40 honey bee colonies. These honey bees will be featured in our Beekeeping Bootcamp program and our Advanced Beekeeping workshops, allowing aspiring beekeepers to get up close and personal with our bees. These bees will also contribute to pollination services in Westminster and Wheat Ridge and hopefully produce a bit of extra honey!
