  • 89 people are interested
Häagen-Dazs Honey Bee Haven

We're not currently accepting new volunteers due to COVID-19. If you're interested, please go ahead and apply and we'll be in touch once our volunteer program can safely accommodate you.

We love volunteers at the Haven! The majority of garden maintenance is done by volunteers: you are vital to our success. Volunteer tasks include routine garden maintenance: planting, weeding, mulching, etc. You will work outside, learn about bees and bee habitat, and meet fellow bee-lovers. No experience required, but volunteers should be prepared to work in a variety of weather conditions.

Volunteers also help with special events and tasks. This includes educational open houses, fundraising events, and preparation of garden displays.

Mission Statement

The Häagen-Dazs Honey Bee Haven is a unique outdoor museum where visitors can observe and learn about bees and the plants that support them.

The Haven was planted in the spring of 2009 thanks to a generous donation from Häagen-Dazs.

The half-acre garden, which includes a working beehive, is planted with over 200 species of plants that are attractive to bees. In addition to the non-native honey bee, 80 species of native bees have been observed in the garden.
