Bee health is critical to our survival. In Virginia, hives have dropped by two-thirds since 1970.

George Mason University’s Honey Bee Initiative works on honey bee sustainability by providing an innovative education, conducting collaborative research, and establishing community partnerships in our local Northern Virginia region.

Your support allows us to expand our applied teaching, research, and local outreach programs to improve bee health, food security, and public bee education.
