Open Hives 2023

Free

Jun 10 - Aug 26

Boston Nature Center

Weekly (on Saturdays)

Visit the Boston Nature Center on Saturday mornings to explore honey bee life -- how they make their honey, how they survive the winter, and more. This nature-based program is a collaboration between the Boston Nature Center and Boston Area Beekeepers. The organizers ask that you arrive at 10 am and stay as long as you wish!


If you're curious what else the Nature Center has to offer? Their Nature Nook is a nature-based play space where your little one can dig in sand, play with sticks, experiment with water, and more. Enjoy!
