Philadelphia Honey Festival
The Wagner Free Institute of Science is proud to be a part of the second annual Philadelphia Honey Festival. The festival aims to raise awareness about the importance of bees to our environment, the impact of local honey on our economy, and to promote urban beekeeping and gardening. This program is geared towards homeschoolers and highlights the importance of pollinators, like the honey bee, in our lives. Activities will include a scavenger hunt in the Wagner’s historic exhibition hall, demonstrations of honey extraction from a working beehive and beeswax candle making.
