This Eco-Agri-Tourism experience offers something for everyone – education, research, tourism, agriculture and our Newfoundland heritage.
Located ten minutes from downtown St John’s, in the heartland of the agricultural belt, the reserve is inland away from the ocean coast which provides a micro-climate where honeybees and native pollinators can forage earlier for longer periods of time.
The Honey Bee Hike
A sweet Newfoundland experience. Come explore a unique outdoor adventure. Each visit to the reserve is different and you may experience the following:
• Honey bees and native pollinators foraging on wildflowers. Observe them returning to their hive with pollen and nectar.
• Learn the fundamentals of low impact beekeeping.
• Open up a beehive and taste real honey right out of an active beehive.
• Walk our wilderness trail where you may see grouse, rabbits, waterfowl, songbirds in a protected natural habitat.
• Learn about Newfoundland wildflowers and our boreal forest.
We are now taking reservations for small groups of 4 to 8 people.
Tours are offered Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9:45am-12:00 pm and 1:30pm-3:45pm.
Adults – $48.00 HST included
