Ms. Pavlicek was invited to do a presentation on beekeeping and the environment at the Burlington Garden Club monthly meeting yesterday.  The presentation was titled “Bee-ing Mindful of our Environment.”  She presented information about bee biology, bee social structure, basics of beekeeping, troubles bees are facing in our world, and ways we can help bees and our environment.  This included local wildflower, herbs and tree species to attract pollinators and information about the harmful chemicals we use in our lawns and gardens.

Ms. Pavlicek is a local beekeeper and brought her beekeeping supplies and materials to share with the club.  She also had her own local honey for purchase.  She also informed the club about her new fourth grade science unit on plant & pollinator structure and function.
