I was always buzzed about bees

February 14, 2017 Homepage, News

Last summer I participated in EYA’s Youth Beekeeping and Pollinator Citizen Science programs. I was always buzzed about bees, and last year my passion grew for them immensely. In Youth Beekeeping, I learned about honeybees, how to feel comfortable around them, and how to prevent diseases without immediately resorting to pesticides. The Pollinator Citizen Science program was also incredibly informative and exciting. I took many photos, made some friends, and recently I did a university project honouring native bees because I’m still crazy about them!   —Gif Wright, EYA Program Participant
