Bee Sanctuaries

Did you know 1 in 4 native bee species are experiencing steep population declines? And an estimated 40% of honey bee colonies in the U.S. died last year? This is a threat to our ecosystem and our food supply.

We support bee populations by creating bee sanctuaries where visitors can observe honeybee hive inspections, watch native bees zipping in and out of their homes, and also participate in workshops designed to engage and educate.

We strategically place gentle native bees, honey bee, and their demonstration homes/hives in local gardens, urban farms and green spaces where they can bolster bee populations, advance education and pollinate locally grown food.
