From Evolution to Observation

The Honeybee Discovery Center will take the visitor from the past to the present, as bees and humans adapt to the challenges of an ever-changing world. Foremost, it will provide a unique opportunity to observe and study honey bees scientifically and socially.

Bees and Blossoms

There exists a clearly-defined nexus between pollinators and our food supply—especially almonds. Nestled in “The Valley of the Queens,” The Honeybee Discovery Center’s permanent exhibits will include an in-depth emphasis on beekeeping and California’s almond industry, and the queen bees produced in this unique microclimate known as Northern California.
