YEG Honeycomb Partnership

A new form of flight has returned to Blatchford Field and is a creating “buzz” for the museum.  The Alberta Aviation Museum is excited to serve as a partner site to host two resident bee colonies at our facility. Part of the YEG Honeycomb Project, this sustainability initiative aims to provide 12 pollinator penthouses across 6 historic locations throughout Edmonton.

Our resident beekeeper, Enessa Habib will be hosting community talks about the importance of bees and how they tie into the history of the area.  Get a glimpse of their unique life-cycles and how these new flight ambassadors are contributing to the new sustainable chapter of Blatchford field.
