    Question Educational Bee Poster

    I have been asked to set up an educational booth at a local plant nursery where I have a few hives. Its a two day event with me being there for only one day. I was hoping to buy an educational bee poster that might cover something like "the lifecycle of the honey bee" or "how bees pollinate" etc. I would mount it on foam-core board & put it on an easel. Any good ideas and where I can buy them? I was also going to have some of my equipment there for "show and tell." I'll walk whoever wants a tour out to the "bee yard" (three hives). OldScout.

    Kelly sells some really nice posters. I have one myself. Keep forgetting about it. Want to frame it and put it up in my workshop.

    We run a local apiary program every year for about 6 weeks in duration. There are between 1500 to 2000 fifth graders who are bused to us from the various schools of the local school systems. We use a number of posters but the best ones that capture their interest the most is this set of 12 honey picture prints. Assuredly money well spent.
