Bee Lecture at SPC Tarpon

SPC Programs & Events

By Fred Arnold

Tom Stephens, a local beekeeper and owner of Bee Branch Creek Apiaries, enlightened students at SPC Tarpon on honey bees: their habits, their anatomy, and most importantly, their impact on the ecosystem.

Stephens taught the students at St. Petersburg College about more than just bees; he taught them what passion looks like. The Environmental and Sustainability Club offers amazing opportunities, like the honey bee presentation. In the upcoming months, lectures on birds of prey and GMO’s are on the menu. Contact Professor Kelli Stickrath for more details!
