“There are fewer honeybees, bee species and other pollinators available for pollination,” project coordinator Linda Martin explains. “We knew we needed to expand our education and outreach efforts.”

With funding through the Bee BC Program to conduct their Bee Awareness School Education project, the Society teamed up with the Mount Sentinel Secondary Woodworking Shop to build ten glass observation bee hives which will now be used to provide the learning module at new schools.

According to Linda, she could not have asked for more willing volunteers.

“Our project was very successful, the students of Mount Sentinel woodworking shop were very knowledgeable, eager and hard working to complete the construction and finishing of the bee hives,” she reports.
