Offered All Year: What is a pollinator, and why are they important? Join Howell Farm and Mercer County Nature Program educators as we explore the fascinating world of pollinators, and the littlest farm animal, the honeybee. At Howell Living History Farm we take special care of our bees, because we know they work hard for us. Virtually visit our hives with the beekeeper to learn about hive life and all the wonderful things bees do. Then, students will continue to examine pollinators at home or in the school yard with activities on anatomy, identification, and a scavenger hunt.
Virtual field trips feature fun hands-on activities designed to get your students outside and exploring. Each program includes:
