Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Association’s Junior Beekeeper programs are unique opportunities for children ages 6* – 13 to experience hands-on learning about our most powerful pollinators.
Children will learn all about honey bees and beekeeping using a variety of methods before suiting up in protective gear and visiting a beehive with an experienced beekeeper!
The day ends after extracting honey from a hive and participants are sent home with a personalized certificate, small bottle of honey, and other bee related goodies.
All programs are held on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
The programs will be held on the following days in 2023, rain or shine!
- April 15 – Blue Heron (Buckhead)
- May 13 – Wylde Center (Decatur)
- June 17 – Green Meadows Preserve (Cobb County)
- September 9 – Rucker Park (Alpharetta)
