    • Bee Hives: BEE AWARE! Hidden Oaks is home to three bee hives to educate our visitors of their many benefits and to harvest locally-grown honey. Honeybees are not aggressive unless provoked. Visitors sensitive or allergic to bee stings should exercise caution near hives. Purchase honey at the front desk while supplies last.
