The large scale fiberglass “worker bee” sculpture in the Honey Bee Garden was designed as a climber to engage children in learning about bees through play. Worker bees, all female, are thought to control the fate of their colony by their unceasing activities. At different stages of their short lives they take care of the young, defend the hive, clean and cool the hive, forage miles for pollen and nectar and produce honey to feed the colony.
