The Creative Discovery Museum downtown Chattanooga is home to three beehives. The hives are located on the roof of the museum. Each year at harvest time local beekeepers from the Tennessee Valley Beekeepers Association and the Northwest Georgia Beekeepers Association spend time at the museum harvesting the honey from the beehives and teaching children about the honey bee. The Honey Harvest for 2011 is July 30 and 31 from noon to 4:00. Activities include beehive demonstration, honey extraction, honey tasting, beeswax candles and more. Volunteer beekeepers will be available to answer questions on both days.
