In 2013, we founded The Bee Cause Project to help Savannah Bee Company achieve our desired impact on the world of bees. The Bee Cause is a non-profit organization that works to engage students of all ages within their own environments through observation-based learning. The STEAM-based curriculum, educational beehives, and international network build learning opportunities in classrooms and communities, in order to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.
Savannah Bee Company’s founder Ted Dennard, a lifelong beekeeper, and Tami Enright, a fellow beekeeper and environmental educator have both dedicated their lives to protecting pollinators. The pair partnered to install the first observation hive at Sullivan’s Island Elementary School in South Carolina and have installed hundreds of hives since.
Alongside The Bee Cause Project’s sponsors, beekeepers, educators, and community members, the organization has provided Bee Grants to more than 650 schools and organizations, impacting thousands of children across the U.S., Canada, the Bahamas, and Puerto Rico. They continue to connect children to the natural world with the addition of educational pollinator programs in schools, libraries, community centers, and beyond.
