Visit Our Hives
Bee Inspired! Bee Educated!
Our demonstration gardens host a variety of hives (Top Bar, Langstroth, and FlowHives) in order to evaluate their success and their specific usability in Utah environments. Check out one of our demonstration gardens listed below to see beekeeping sites first hand.
USU Botanical Center
An educational opportunity for children and adults, all backed by USU Extension. The center is home to an arboretum arranged according to the irrigation needs of its more than 300 trees and shrubs that demonstrate wise water use in the region.
The USU Botanical Center also features a much-loved urban fishery, walking and biking trails, wetland areas that support birds and other wildlife, and a volunteer-tended garden edible garden.
Wheeler Historic Farm
As a public park, Wheeler Historic Farm is open everyday during daylight hours to walk the farm and visit the animals. USU Extension developed and maintains the demonstration teaching garden just north of the main parking lot and west of the barn. Come on down and check out our pollinator garden that supports our on-site demonstration hive.
Thanksgiving Point Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit farm, garden, and museum complex that draws upon the natural world to cultivate family learning. Thanksgiving Point is located at the center of Utah's population growth, equidistant between Provo and Salt Lake City metro areas. This center has been a long time partner with USU Extension for horticulture programming.
