Amongst many other activities Patricia will be giving her interactive bee class inside of a zome


There will be some sneak previews of the exhibits to come.

It is always really exciting to see our vision and drawings come to life. Last week we took a field trip to Scientific Art Studio to see what Ron has been working on for the exhibits
