Explore The Honeybee – Unique Experiences In Fort Wayne: The Waynedale News

Article from the Waynedale News (Published May 6, 2016)

Southwest Honey Education Waynedale NewsSince the late 1990s, beekeepers have noticed a decline in the honeybee population including high rates of collapse within colonies. Beekeepers have reported between 30-50% higher rates of hive loss. The declining bee population is a serious concern and issue facing humans globally. Pollinators have a great impact on food production, the balance of ecosystems and the farming community. There is an awesome symbiotic relationship between these essential pollinators and food we enjoy every day.

To help address this dire problem, Southwest Honey Co. will be holding a pollinator educational program for children and young adults throughout the summer of 2016 that helps children connect with their environment through the eyes of the honeybee. Now enrolling online at www.southwesthoney.com/education, families can sign up their children, including teens, to experience a hands-on adventure-based class all about the honeybee, activity in the hive, how pollination impacts what we eat and more fun activities like a walk through the prairie and trying local honey.
