about the bee habitat

Honey bee populations in the United States are facing potential extinction, with over 50% of honey bee populations dying off in just the last 10 years. Bees pollinate over $15b in US crops each year, so their decline has alarming implications for human food supplies. The Bee Habitat is helping to alleviate this problem in the Tucker area by building and maintaining new honey bee habitats and educating the public about the importance of bees.
