The Bee Cause Project began after a conversation between two beekeepers, Ted Dennard of the Savannah Bee Company, and Bee Cause Director, Tami Enright, about how to reconnect kids with their environments. This idea quickly evolved into placing observation honeybee hives in schools in order for students to observe, embrace, and learn from our little friends: the honeybee.
Through our initial goal of installing bee hives in 1,000 schools, the project aims to encourage young people to care about the well-being of all bees and protect their future.
It is no secret our environment is in crisis. But this is where we have found an opportunity to help. The Bee Cause believes engaging in conversations in the classroom is a tiny step to solving a large problem. Spark interest at a young age, and those same students will become stewards of the environment.
So far the Bee Grant is in over 500 schools in all 50 States, Canada, and the Bahamas. Join us to get creative with problem solving, provide the Bee Wise STE(A)M Curriculum and stimulate conversations to #savethebees and our food systems all over the world.
