If you haven’t already made a gift to Winnakee this year, please consider a recommended donation of: $10 per person, $25 per family. Rain date TBD.
Join us to celebrate World Bee Day and help Winnakee and our partner, the Pollinator Patrol Club, raise awareness of the essential role bees and other pollinators play in keeping people and the planet healthy, and the many challenges they face today. We will dedicate a new bee house for Burger Hill thanks to the Bee Conservancy. Hands-on bee house-making activity and learning demos for families!
Beekeeping is a widespread and global activity, with millions of beekeepers depending on bees for their livelihoods and well-being. Together with wild pollinators, bees play a major role in maintaining biodiversity, ensuring the survival and reproduction of many plants, supporting forest regeneration, promoting sustainability and adaptation to climate change, improving the quantity and quality of agricultural productions.
