Learn to Love Heartland Bees
The prairie is home to a wide variety of bees that make our food production possible — let’s learn to appreciate how their hard work pays off!
About the Activities

In this series of activities, kids will learn about the importance of native bees for foods we love to eat, and how they do what they do, and how we can help protect them.
