All things bee are celebrated on Saturday, August 20th, at the Oregon Honey Festival in Ashland. 

Our appreciation of pollination has grown in recent years, as bee numbers have continued to decline. 

Entomologist Dr. Lynn Royce has studied bee population declines, and her nonprofit Tree Hive Bees aims to put bees where they naturally belong: in trees.  She visits the Exchange to talk about tree hives and the various factors contributing to bee number declines.
