World Bee Day

On World Bee Day on the 20th of May, Steenbok Nature Reserve was visited by this happy group from Queen Bee Nursery and Pre-primary School.  With the help of Steenbok’s ‘Look Deep into Nature’ educational book, the children buzzed around the Aquifer, and learned all about the colorful flora and fauna that can be found in the park.  The Aquifer is a favorite place for visiting bees, as there are indigenous camphor trees in bloom, providing pollen, and a shallow water source at which the bees can quench their thirst.
