Bee Liner

In the coming year, we will be launching an interactive Virtual Reality honey bee experience in classrooms across the country! We look forward to driving the Bee Liner to your neighborhood soon.

Perhaps the most important thing that we can do to help the honey bees is to teach children to understand the role that honey bees play and to care about them.

Education Partner

We partnered with the National Geographic Society to produce a two-minute video that demonstrates the importance of honey bees. At Sweet Virginia Foundation, our mission is to provide in-classroom instruction and host field trips to our honey bee sanctuary delivering a hands-on experience to students of all ages. Check out the video to learn more about these pollinators.
