We now have a working observational beehive of our own, built by Dave Remling and populated and maintained by Anne Frey. You can watch the bees as they build their hive around the queen bee.
To celebrate our new beehive, we’ve put together a five part program on bees. From September through October you can learn about bee-keeping from a master bee-keeper, or how to cook with honey from a local Chef. Or, with a master herbalist, make your own cosmetics and skin care products with honey.
Attend a Bee Summit and learn how bees and bee-keeping fit into the cultures of Ukraine and Haiti. We also have activities for children under 12 and their families. All this is made possible thanks to a grant from NYSCA .

You are invited! Join us at our open house and dedication ceremony on October 5th for the opening of our new laboratory building, the David Remling Science Laboratory, dedicated to the memory of our good friend and long time SRC member David Remling who passed away in October 2013. There will be tours, exhibits and a story telling program by Mohawk storyteller Kay Olan.
Open house is from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, with a dedication ceremony at 2:00 pm (at the SRC Nature Center 2025 Burtonsville Rd). Storytelling by Kay Olan is at 3:00 pm (at the SRC Cultural Arts building at 2047 Burtonville Rd). This event is free to the public. We hope to see you there!
For his Eagle Scout project, EST member and SRC Youth Board Member Reyers Brusoe built a beautiful Appalachian Style lean-to f(one of the photos below) or the Schoharie River Center, under the guidance of area Master Timber Framer Kim Balfour, and with the help of many Boy Scouts, EST members, friends and family. Join us 10/12/14 at 2:00 pm as Reyers receives his Eagle Scout award and the Lean-to is dedicated to the resiliency of all those who were affected by the devastation from the flooding caused by Hurricane Irene in 2011. The lean-to is located on the 20 acres of the Schoharie River Center’s preserve at 2025 Burtonville Rd.
