A Honey Bee Habitat Enhancement Opportunity!
The Pollinator Partnership (P2) is looking to partner with North Carolina farmers, ranchers, foresters, and land managers and owners to participate in a honey bee forage habitat enhancement effort called the U.S. Bee Buffer Project. The U.S. Bee Buffer project has a goal of influencing 6,000 acres positively for of honey bee habitat. A honey bee seed mix will be provided at no cost to plant Bee Buffers. The U.S. Bee Buffer Project will create foraging habitat of pollen and nectar sources, essential to honey bee health.
Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. Unfortunately they are in trouble.
