Discovering Bees in Dorval

Published on 09-28-2018

On September 22, a number of Dorval residents had the chance to live a one-of-a-kind experience by rubbing shoulders with bees.

An interactive activity took place in the morning to help people discover the mysteries of bees and their hives. A beekeeper allowed all who were on site to see real honeycomb straight out of the hive covered with hundreds of worker bees, and to live a unique and educative experience without any danger.

It is important to note that the City of Dorval welcomed this year, in the area north of the Westwood Sports Centre (750 Thorncrest Avenue), two beehives that are fenced in. By the end of the growing season, bees produce honey thanks to the flowers grown in the community gardens and in the area. This honey was extracted separately so that the City was able to create its own, personalized honey jars, with the unique taste of Dorval’s flowers.

The beehives are maintained by an experienced beekeeper, who helps them remain healthy, while the bees help to green the area around the hive.
