Save the Honey Bee Haven to Save the Bees

The UC Davis Honey Bee Haven needs our help! As of October 1, 2019 the Haven will lose 50% of its funding ! 

The Häagen-Dazs Honey Bee Haven at UC Davis  is all about teaching, research, and outreach to save the bees. The programs at the Haven are consistently rated highly by visitors and they have grown every year of their existence with 3,500 people visiting the Haven this year! The bees and visitors need that work to continue and together we can keep this unique garden going strong! 

This fundraiser is sponsored by the Sacramento Area Beekeepers AssociationSABA is providing a match for the first $500 raised!

Beekeepers know the importance of education about bees and other pollinators considering the staggering losses we are seeing each year.  We need the help of the public in saving the bees and the Honey Bee Haven helps visitors and beekeepers learn about plants and flowers that provide vital nutrition to bees and other pollinators. Creating these pollinator friendly habitats in our own backyards using what we learn at the Haven helps bees everywhere! 

As of October 1, 2019, the Haven will lose 50% of its funding. This will fundamentally change their ability to fulfill their mission.

• Maintained, pollinator focused garden open to the public.
