Virtual Farm Field Trips

Florida Agriculture in the Classroom is excited to announce that we are partnering with Shiftology to host virtual farm field trips in the 2021-2022 school year.

Save the date: February 8, 2022 at 9:00 AM

Join us LIVE as we continue to tour Florida Agriculture at our next virtual field trip with the UF/IFAS Honey Bee Research and Extension Lab!

The University of Florida beekeeping (apiculture) program goes back to 1929, when Dr. Wilmon Newell, the first Plant Commissioner for the Florida State Plant Board was appointed to direct the University of Florida’s College of Agriculture as well as its Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service. Over the years the program expanded and in 2018, the Honey Bee Research and Extension Laboratory was opened. The mission of the Honey Bee Research and Extension Laboratory (HBREL) is to advance our understanding of managed honey bees in Florida, the U.S., and globally, with a goal of improving the health and productivity of honey bees everywhere. We address this goal by conducting basic and applied research projects on honey bees, communicating our findings to assorted clientele groups through diverse extension programming, and training future generations of bee educators, researchers, conservationists, and more.

Join us as we learn all about honey bees and other pollinators from the UF/IFAS experts.
