BEE APIARY IN ATLANTA
Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Association (MABA) Apiary
Gina Gallucci, previous President of the MABA, installed two hives on Blue Heron property in 2010.
You can find these hives by the Community Garden as you continue around the Woodland Loop Trail.
Gina hosts Public Hive Inspections every spring which are organized through MABA.
We also host an annual Junior Beekeepers program with MABA.
Southeast Beescapes Apiary
In 2017, honey bee hives were started by Brooke Vacovsky- a local beekeeper and founder of Southeast Beescapes.
Her apiary is located at the Land O Lakes Property.
There are currently four honey bee hives hosted at Land O Lakes and are used for educational purposes on site and around Atlanta.
If you’d like to contact her about honey bee hive installation, maintenance, and educational opportunities, then contact Brooke: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Native Bees of Georgia
Did you know that honey bees are not native to Georgia?
While honey bees get a lot of public attention, the real heroes of our local ecology are our native bees.
Georgia alone has over 500 native bee species that are responsible for most of our non-agricultural pollination.
To show some love for our native bees, consider planting native flowers in your yard.
