Bees play a vital role in our ecosystem. Plants need them to pollinate, other species rely on pollination as a means of survival, including various animals, insects and birds. The widespread use of pesticides and GMO's, as well as climate change and loss of habitat have caused long term damage to the bees. Over the past 10 years, beekeepers have reported annual hive losses of 30% or higher. One in four Wild Bee species in the United States is at risk of extension. We must be proactive in our collective efforts to #SaveTheBees. Join the Keep Riverdale Beautiful Honey Bee Hive by visiting our Homepage and completing our KRB Volunteer Application.
