Volunteer Beekeepers at the NC Zoo

Volunteer beekeepers are always needed to staff the permanent Honey Bee Exhibit. Training is provided to all volunteers and has been developed cooperatively by NC Zoo Volunteer Coordinators and the NCSBA.

The orientation/training is brief but thorough and will consist of specific methods for using the signs and interpretive elements on the exhibit site and ways of engaging the public and encouraging discussions. The necessary protocols for safety, security, exhibit access, and parking are also included in the training.

The Honey Bee Garden is Open!
