The Bee Cause Project has been serving the community since 2013 connecting youth and adults across the United States (and beyond) with the secret life of bees through the installation of observation hives inside of schools as well as traditional hives in their gardens.
The mission of The Bee Cause Project is to ensure future generations are stewards of the natural environment who understand, engage, and are inspired by the wonder of honey bees while being empowered to take action through careers in STEM.
The objectives are to utilize bee learning centers to: reconnect youth and adults with the natural world, provide an engaging and unique tool for teaching STEM to students, empower students to act as bee ambassadors, and instill in youth the value of hard work, collective impact, and the importance every individual has in their community.
To date, the Bee Cause has provided hives for 220 schools in 46 states and 4 countries that are a part of the Bee Cause community.
