Living With Bees

Much of the public understands the importance of bees to our environment, especially pollination services. Chesterfield, in the UK, launched a 3 year drive to protect and enhance bee populations in the surrounding area.  The launch was accompanied by exhibits of bumblebee pollinators, bumblebee art by school children and a new wooden bee sculpture created by chainsaw sculptor, Andrew Frost.  The campaign is intended to teach the youth about the importance of bees and engage them in activities that preserve and enhance bees.  Bees will remain an important part of our future environment.
