Baldwin Wallace at the Bee Barn

Baldwin Wallace Professor Andrew Merwin and his Biology class spent Tuesday afternoon (10/6) working a colony of bees with members of GCBA at the Cuyahoga County Fairground bee yard.

They went through a colony of bees, did a top to bottom Inspection with instruction, and even found the queen. Holding bees, sampling honey and even finding one varroa mite!

This was the first time that this group of students had ever been around or experienced a colony of bees first hand. Confident that we inspired a few of them to try beekeeping in their bright futures.

Thank you to all who made this event possible.
