Explore the Honey Bee

Article and Video from INFortWayne by Ray Steup

Southwest Honey Co. was founded by Alex Cornwell and Megan Ryan as an initiative to protect and conserve the local bee population.

In 2016, “Explore The Honey Bee,” a unique educational program for students K-12 was started as an introduction to the benefits of pollinators with a focus on the honey bee. The 90-minute, hands-on experience was designed by Ryan, the lead educator.

Ryan has a master’s degree in education and a passion for all pollinators.

The Allen County Public Library has teamed up with Southwest Honey Co. to bring “Explore the Honey Bee” program to 12 of its 14 library branches over the next month.
