Every Bee Has Its (Collective) Day: Oregon Celebrates Bees
Maybe you know one of those people who is just afraid of bees, and runs when they come near. They may not change quickly, but society's attitude toward bees is evolving.
Massive bee kills and ongoing population problems have highlighted the importance of, and challenges to, bees.
They got their own day this year, with August 15th designated Native Bees Conservation Awareness Day in Oregon.
Lisa Arkin of Beyond Toxics in Eugene proposed the day to the governor; Lisa joins us with a wrap-up of the day's events and the days ahead.
