We believe education is a path to transformation.
As individuals and communities discover the essential role of bees in our daily life and ecosystems, they become more connected to — and invested in — the environment around them. Join us for interactive events, community science programs, webinars, honey bee Hive Dives, and more and let your passion for pollinators take flight!
Events & Webinars
Our free online and in-person events educate, engage, and inspire environmental stewardship through the celebration of our favorite pollinators: bees! Join us for live honey bee “hive dives,” nature walks, webinars, tastings, arts and crafts, and more.
Learn on the go, with a snap of a photo — and give data to one million scientists and researchers worldwide! Our community science project invites you to collect images of bees and pollinators, and collaborate with experts to identify local species.
Bees are a science class with wings, offering fascinating insights into the environment, biology, ecology, and nutrition. Create buzz about bees with activities and guides that have been developed by experts to deliver insights and spark curiosity.
