Bee Club

Bee Club

The Bishop Blanchet Bee club will teach students about beekeeping and the important role pollinators play in our ecosystem.  The Bee club maintains honeybee hives at Licton Springs P-Patch.  Through meeting at the P-Patch and doing hive inspections, the students will learn the intricacies of honeybee management. The Bee club supplies protective bee suits and gloves for the students.  During the off season of active beehive management students will learn about products that can be created from the hive.

When and where the club meets:
The Bee Club will meet at the Licton Springs P-Patch twice a month from spring through fall to perform hive inspections.  The hive inspections will be either after school or on weekends.  Hive inspection work parties will be limited to 5 students so that each student will be assured to have a bee suit, which will be provided.  The Bee Club will also meet occasionally after school to learn about honey extraction, wax melting, candle making, building beehives components, and other activities associated with beekeeping.
