Beekeeping at Andrew Mountain Park


Naugatuck Park & Recreation Dept. has opened a Bee Sanctuary at Andrew Mountain Park.

In addition to providing additional pollination to both Andrew Mtn. Park and the Community Garden, our goal is to help increase the honeybee population.

Naugatuck Park & Recreation is partnering with Peter Ferreira on this project.

Peter Ferreira is a third-generation beekeeper. He has been very active in the beekeeping industry as a beekeeper, spokesperson, and educator and is presently obtaining his Master Beekeeper Certification from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. He is currently a professional beekeeper and keeps his hives in his home apiary and other locations in Connecticut.


Join Peter on the first Thursday of each month at the Rec center for a free conversation about bees and beekeeping! 6:30-8pm. Please call 203-720-7043 or 203-244-7702 or email Peter at to register.
