NW Honeybee Habitat Restoration was created for the vital reason of saving our honeybees and pollinators through honeybee rescue and relocation, public education and primarily habitat restoration.
Our goal is to plant as much pollinator habitat as we can which in turn creates urban safe zones free from herbicides and pesticides where the honeybees and other pollinators can find safe healthy forage. Our pollinator pathway projects provide valuable hands on learning opportunities for community residents of all ages and race, especially children who learn about soil preparation, planting, pollinator needs and requirements as well as what it takes to create and maintain healthy habitat & environmental stuardship. We feel this is the most proactive (boots on the ground) approach to making a positive impact for our pollinators and results are proven sometimes within the first day of completion by seeing honeybees, mason and native bees, bumblebees, butterflies, potters wasps, fiery skippers and cabbage whites showing up on the new forage where previously there was nothing but dry grass!
Please take a second to think of what bees pollinate, fruits, vegetables, the herbs we use to season our foods, nuts, berries, cotton for clothing, clover and alfalfa which is the main feed for the cattle industry from which we get yogurt, milk, cheese, butter, ice cream, dairy and beef. Coffee beans depend on pollination for increased yields, think of star bucks and your morning coffee. There are flowers for our holidays, beeswax which is used in the cosmetic industry, and let’s not forget honey! We feel the importance of our pollinators cannot be overstated and hope you will consider our organization and the important role we play at protecting and preserving such a valuable resource which we all depend on.
