The OBA Observation Hives (OH) can hold two Langstroth frames in a secured glass case. Primarily used at club events as a conversation starter and educational tool, it is also available to club members looking to connect others to bee culture. The summer fairs are a high impact for OBA outreach. During the fair days (Thurston Co. 8/2-8/6, Grays Harbor Co. 8/9-8/13) the bees are enjoyed by people all day. The bees – however accommodating – will be relieved when there are reconnected to their home colony after a 12+ hour shift. The more bee frames volunteered the more we minimize the colony separation. We encourage club members to get involved populating the OH with their own bees; as it is somewhat rewarding to watch the ladies work revealing some of their BEEhavior that is usually hidden in the box.
Alex and Maren (OH coordinators) can be contacted by interested OBA members.
