Highlights: New Colony and B104 Partnership Bring New Buzz to Honeybee Hive

B104 Honeybee Hive
There is a new buzz at the Da Vinci Science Center as its popular honeybee hive exhibit has come back to life with a new colony of bees along with a new name and sponsor.

The newly-renamed B104 Honeybee Hive welcomed thousands of new bees recently with support from the Lehigh Valley Beekeepers Association. Association member Steve Finke of Meadow View Beekeeping in Kutztown, Pa., also reconditioned the observation box before installing the new hive.

The B104 Honeybee Hive is a seasonal exhibit that lets visitors observe the life and life cycles of a working colony of honeybees – including the queen bee, her servants, worker bees, and drones. A specially-designed tube lets the bee travel outside the building to get what they need and return to the hive.

B104 radio – an iHeartMedia station based in Allentown, Pa. – has been named the hive’s sponsor in recognition of its extensive promotion support of Da Vinci Science Center exhibits and events. The Da Vinci Science Center and B104 will re-dedicate the exhibit during a special visitor event on Sunday, July 10.
