The Community Bee Clinic at W. J. Beal Garden

September 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In this pollinator rescue workshop, participants will learn all about honeybees, their ecological significance, and the novel interdisciplinary work undertaken at the Community Bee Clinic—a radical veterinary practice where visitors can become emergency caregivers for ailing bees. This community-based art-science project features a unique, experimental bee-nursing protocol that enables participants to treat common insect health emergencies such as malnourishment and hypothermia. At the workshop, attendees will learn how to enact this special bee-nursing care themselves, allowing them to resuscitate any struggling bees they may find. Attendees will also receive their own portable D.I.Y. bee rescue kits, complete with the materials needed to do this rescue work at home or in their neighborhoods. After this workshop, attendees will know how to engage with non-human bodies in new ways, opening up novel opportunities for interspecies interaction.
