Bee education

Hortus Alkmaar

Learn everything about the bee!

In Hortus, education about this important animal was chosen because it does a lot for people. The object consists of 5 triangular tubes that you can turn as a visitor. Each tube consists of a different bee theme. For example, one about the different species, on about their food and one about their nesting behavior.

Turn and discover

We're pretty sure that there is some information that you didn't know yet. Even we at Peerdrops still learn about this special animal species every time, although we have already created quite a few educational objects about the bee. For example, did you know that some bees eat just about every flower while others are very picky and only like 1 plant? Without Andoorn in your garden you have very little chance of encountering the grote wolvin (a bee species).

Epilogue :)

Go and visit this beautiful garden, it is really worth it! In addition to numerous special plants, you will also find various animal species such as the kingfisher, a great aquarium on a pond (huh?), frogs, bats and much more. And oh yes, with a bit of luck more educational objects from Peerdrops soon :-).
