Bee The Change


Bees pollinate a significant portion of the food we grow and eat but now bees are in trouble. They have been disappearing and dying at alarming rates, with beekeepers reporting astonishing losses. While policy makers have yet to take meaningful action to address the known causes of bee die‐offs, home gardeners, hobbyist beekeepers and individuals across the country have been stepping up to protect honey bees and other pollinators in their own backyards. This groundswell of support of bees is inspiring and important, but we need to keep building momentum and we need to press for policy change. Use this toolkit to spread the word about the challenges bees face and to learn about simple actions you can take to restore bee habitat or reduce exposure to harmful pesticides.
