Beekeeping in Lethbridge began in 1909 with the first experimental honey production by David Whitney of the Ideal Farm. This region soon became the centre of Alberta’s beekeeping industry, thanks largely to its long sunny days and irrigation agriculture. Explore more than 100 years of beekeeping history in southern Alberta, and learn about different managed and wild bee populations.

Check out the details about the new exhibit at the Galt, Buzzworthy: Beekeeping in Southwestern Alberta.
