Thanks for Supporting TLC’s Apiary!

Open Hive Day

Thanks to all of our amazing donors, we have raised the funds to complete our InsiOnline fundraising for Inside the Hivede the Hive project! Beginning in the summer of 2014, visitors to the Apiary will get an inside look at the fascinating lives of honeybees, the art of beekeeping, and the essential role pollinators play in the world. Our new Observation Beehive will be installed into the wall of a brand new outdoor classroom structure.

Just as every bee is important to the overall health of our environment, every dollar donated to Inside the Hive was crucial to reaching our goal. Your donation directly contributed to our local ecosystems, helping to keep them healthy and vibrant. THANK YOU!

Stay tuned for updates! Construction will begin in the spring of 2014. We hope to see you all at the hives this summer!
