Bees do more than just make honey — did you know we can also thank them for nearly one-third of the food we eat? Many of our healthy fruits, vegetables and nuts come from bee-pollinated plants! That’s why it’s so important for us to help bees. There are lots of things we can do to “Beesponsible” in our own daily lives.

Spread your knowledge and teach your friends about the wonders of the bee.
