Hi,

I am a science teacher in Royal Palm Beach who is looking for a guest who could speak to my class about bee keeping, and possibly show some artifacts from a hive. I am new to the area so I do not have any contacts here but my students in the past really enjoyed talking to someone who has hands on experience. I am teaching about the current threats to bee populations and I hope that educating young students will help them value bees in the future. Please contact me at zlecky@gmail.com if you are able to visit on a M-Thur or if you might have objects you could loan me. I am ideally looking for someone to come in late February but could be flexible. Thank you!
