Eataly’s Honey-Themed Rooftop Restaurant
To celebrate the importance of honeybees and their influence on the culinary world, the team at Eataly launched Serra by Birreria, a beautiful, bee-focused restaurant in NYC. Learn more about their delicious menu, and how it supports The Bee Conservancy.
RuPaul's Drag Race: Beehive Jive
Season 12, episode 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race featured a “Beehive Jive” mini-challenge and raised awareness about declining bee populations. After crowning a new queen bee, RuPaul announced a generous donation to our organization and encouraged audiences to check out our online resources on air.
