It’s no secret that pollinators are a crucial part of our food system. In fact, 84% of commercially grown crops are insect-pollinated, and honey bees contribute $24 billion annually to U.S. agriculture. Think about it this way: one in three bites of food are made possible by bees!
Despite this VIP-status in the food world, they are bombarded by threats to their food, homes and environment from every angle! It’s hard to be a busy bee when you’re losing places to land, places to rest, places to eat, places to live – and places to pollinate.
So, how can you help and #GiveBeesAChance? You can teach the kiddos in your life about their importance through together-time activities from our Kids Club!
"Putting on the suit made me feel like a real bee keeper. I was actually afraid to get close to the hives, but I forgot about how scared I was when I saw the bees up close. Hopefully next year I will get to help when we get the honey from hives."
"I like how I can go outside and watch the happy bees flying around. I also like knowing that we have something that greatly benefits the world and plants around us.
"Every bite you take depends on the bees"
