If the sheer volume of required protective gear is a measure of daredevilry, beekeeping is on par with sports like skydiving and racecar driving: In full regalia, professional beekeepers resemble the CDC operatives in Outbreak. Dress will be slightly more informal when apiarist Dane Hannum leads An Inspection of the Walney Hives, though the Fairfax County Park Authority urges participants to “wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and bring gloves.” A dessert made with honey will be served to survivors. From 1-4 p.m. at Lawrence Park, 5040 Walney Rd., Chantilly. FREE. For reservations call (703) 631-0013. CP
