Huntley Meadows Features Bees And Bones

From Fairfax County Park Authority:

There are two exciting programs coming up at Huntley Meadows Park.  One program features the buzz on bees and the other explores bones, the makings of a very good skeleton! You can join in the fun with these family-friendly and affordable weekend activities.

On Saturday, February 26, 2011, get all abuzz about the bees and learn about the fascinating lives of our native bees.  The program runs from 4 to 5:30 p.m.  Find out how they contribute to the human world and what you can do to attract them to your garden.  Discuss plans for a bee box including how to build them and how to care for them.  The cost is just $6 per person. 

On Sunday, February 27, explore the world of bones.  Every skeleton has a secret.  Search the clues left behind in animal skulls, teeth and bones. The program runs from 2 to 3:30 p.m. and is perfectly suited for youngsters ages 9 to 12.  The cost is $6 per person.
