The Hallockville Education Committee explores and develops new ideas for education of both adults and children with staff participation and in accordance with the Mission of Hallockville Museum Farm. They also help in locating funding sources, knowledgeable teachers, and interested schools and libraries to increase awareness of the ‘Living Heritage’ at Hallockville. The Committee is also working on developing training for educators (see our History at Hallockville page).

Welcome to Hallockville’s Friendly Dose of Nature
Here are some photos of trees you may see when you visit.

Trees are valuable because they:

2. provide homes for animals.
3. provide oxygen.
4. clean CO2 out of the air.

6. provide food and shelter.
7. help bring rainfall.
8. prevent damage due to floods.
9. control noise pollution.
10. provide shade and cooling.

The Honey Bees of Hallockville

Our third unit provides information about the Honeybees of Hallockville. Here at Hallockville Museum Farm we want to do our job in protecting honeybees so they can continue to contribute to the ecosystem. We want to educate the public to their world-wide importance and have them understand what we are doing here on the farm and what they can do in their own backyard.

This presentation will present information on the following:
– A history of the arrival of the honeybee to the United States
– The honeybee’s role in our environment
– The social dynamic and caste system within the bee community
– Their threat from society
– What Hallockville is doing to help the honeybee
– Learn how to create your own hive, or sponsor one
