Potential New Beekeepers

The Madison County Beekeepers Association supports the Huntsville Botanical Garden by providing honeybee related classes and or talks in support of their Educational Outreach Program.   The below picture was taken in the Summer of 2004 as part of their “Wings and Stings” program for children grades K thru 3.   One of the class options is to allow any child in attendance to try on a full beekeepers suit.   Adult bee suits do not always fit all children!    To the untrained eye, it might not be all that obvious that his veil/hat is not quiet right.   Who knows, this young man may well grow up to be a full time beekeeper.
