Mission Statement

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

Description

The Haven was planted in the spring of 2009 thanks to a generous donation from H?agen-Dazs. Pollination is essential for the production of many of their ice cream ingredients; as they learned more about declining bee populations and bee health concerns, they sought a way to provide support for the entomologists working to address these issues. The Haven brought this vision to life.

The half-acre garden, which includes a working beehive, is planted with over 250 species of plants that are attractive to bees. In addition to the non-native honey bee, 85 species of native bees have been observed in the garden.

The Haven is open every day during daylight hours for self-guided tours. We also host many group tours and eductional events throughout the year.
