Honey Bee Observation Hive
This exhibit gives visitors a close-up look at one of nature's most interesting creatures that is so vital to our food source. Look for the queen, easily identified by the colored dot on her back.
Bees, butterflies, and other pollinators - - so vital to agriculture - - need to be protected to ensure a healthy world. While Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" warned of the threats to pollinating insects from the indiscriminate application of pesticides and herbicides, there may be other factors that need to be studied and understood to ensure their - - and our - - survival.
The fate of pollinators will always be a public concern.
This exhibit was made possible by the generosity of the
FRIENDS OF THE CAPE COD MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY.
