Bayer honors bee supporters in US National Pollinator Week

This year, Bayer is celebrating National Pollinator Week in the USA by launching the Blue Ribbon Beekeepers honor program and announcing further Feed a Bee grants, actively contributing to bee health and pollinator protection.  

The Blue Ribbon Beekeepers initiative recognizes the outstanding achievements of young people who are making a positive impact on their communities through beekeeping, pollinator-related research or education. The beekeeping industry needs this next generation.  

Bayer’s Feed a Bee national pollinator forage initiative supports actions to address the habitat needs of pollinators across the country via funds and awareness-raising. This week Bayer announces 14 new grantees, bringing the total to nearly 180 grantees over the two-year program.  Lack of adequate foraging remains one of the major conservation challenges facing honey bees and other native pollinators.  

Feed a Bee and Blue Ribbon Beekeepers are initiatives of the Bayer Bee Care Program, which continues the company's 30-year history of supporting bee health.
