At dakotabees.com we love our honey bees and native bees and enjoy giving back to the community I live in. I do this by donating my time to educate the public about the importance of these needed pollinators. Feel free to contact me about a community event, school group or other group interested in bees and what you can do to help these pollinators.
I will volunteer to speak with groups or schools about bees. I supply bee displays including live bees in an observation hive. Displays on native bees including several types of bee habitat, bumblebee nest, several types of wasp nests and other information on native bees and honey bees. Below are photos from a pre-school and Highlands Ranch Days.

Dear Greg:

On behalf of Arapahoe County Open Spaces and the Board of County Commissioners, we want to personally thank you for your contributions and volunteerism at our Oct. 20 Fall Festival at 17 Mile House Farm Park.

We were so pleased that you could represent the Colorado Beekeepers Association at the event, and help to celebrate the completed restoration and grand opening of the 17 Mile House Farm Park. Your informational booth added a very important element of environmental education to the event, allowing kids and adults alike to see and touch bee artifacts and learn about the importance of protecting bee habitat in our yards and open spaces.

We truly appreciate your time and efforts, and hope that you found the event to be a strong connection to the community for you and Dakota Bees. If you have any suggestions on how we might improve our Open Spaces program and events, please let us know. We look forward to an ongoing partnership with you in the future!

Thanks again!
