Clifford Wright-Sunflower is a master beekeeper and environmentalist. Aided by an eager volunteer from the audience dressed in beekeeping equipment, Clifford demonstrates the precision of a beekeeper working a beehive. He transforms the entire audience into a working hive. With bodies busily buzzing around, children learn firsthand about the delicate and complex balance of the bee colony. After the honey bee dance, children are divided into smaller groups to make a beeswax candle, and most important, to share bee fears, experiences, and questions. Program presented by Clifford Wright-Sunflower.
