University of Maryland Extension

Pollinator Corners

Members of the Anne Arundel County Master Gardeners Beekeeping Project will discuss beekeeping, including the life and decline of honeybees and how we can create safe and welcoming habitats for all pollinators by planting native plants and practicing sustainable gardening techniques. Weather permitting, we will have an “observation hive”, allowing visitors to watch honeybee activity without concern of being stung.

We invite children and adults to learn about products of the beehive (such as honey and beeswax), members of the beehive, and how bees make honey.

Most demonstrations are held at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis and at Hancock's Resolution in Pasadena.
