On February 16th, representatives from the Lancaster County Master Gardener Program visited Conestoga Elementary 5th and 6th grades. Penn State University Master Gardeners, Lydia Martin, Lydia Pease, Linda Kay Pressley and Michele Pique presented information about local bees species.
Tying directly to our elementary science curriculum, the gardeners shared information about how to protect bees, the importance of local bee populations and how local plants live in synchronicity with bees. In addition to a display of local bees and wasps, a hive of live bees was presented to the 5th and 6th grade classes. Thank you.
