Pollinators, Bee Education, and The Best Job Around

June is National Pollinator Month, so we're shining a light on Emilee Elingburg, the Director of Educational Programs at The Bee Cause Project, our Bee Grant partner. Check out our Q&A, and hear from Emilee about her unique job, tips for starting (and maintaining) a bee program, top picks for pollinator book and movies, the coolest beehives, and, of course, honey!

Learning From Bees: Our Queen Beekeeper's Story

After Whole Kids Foundation funded its first school beehive in 2015, we’ve been a little bee-obsessed. Over 700 beehive grants later - and like our students, teachers and schools - might as well face it, we're addicted to bees! In fact, our Executive Director, Nona Evans even became a beekeeper herself.

Thank You To Our Bee Grant Sponsors

Because of their commitment and generous contributions to supporting pollinator education, we are able to award over 80 beehive grants to schools and nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and Canada so more students can observe and become curious about the world of honey bees.

Since 2011, we have provided over 10 million kids with opportunities to connect with nature and food through our grants and programs.
