BEE THERE

Urban beekeeping is blossoming. See proof on the Boston Tour de Hives, a bike tour with stops at four apiaries in Somerville, Cambridge, and Boston. (You can travel by car if you prefer.) The event is free, but paying $20 gets you a T-shirt and entrance to see the Museum of Science’s observation hive. Meet at the Somerville Community Growing Center, 22 Vinal Avenue, at 9:30 a.m., and bring a lunch. brownpapertickets.com or facebook.com/bostonbeekeepers
