SAVE the BEE supports research and education projects that are aiding commercial beekeepers, training new beekeepers, creating pollinator habitat, rethinking agricultural practices, and moving the needle on honey bee biology and pesticide reform.
Scientific Research on Honey Bee Health
The Honey Bee Lab at Oregon State University is studying the importance of micronutrients to honey bee health and the long-term effects of pesticide exposure on honey bee colonies.
The Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides provides training and assistance with installation of hedgerows and pollinator meadows that provide pollen and nectar over three seasons of the year.
Beyond Toxics leads state-wide coalitions focused on restricting use of persistently hazardous agricultural chemicals, and they work diligently to keep pesticides out of parks, school grounds, golf courses and other public spaces.
