Hive Swarms To Lend A Helping Hand At Wildlife Refuge

By Team Aerohive in · HiveMind Blog · August 23, 2017

This month the Hive Bees pulled together for a volunteer day at a San Francisco Bay Area wildlife refuge. This was the fourth semi-annual Helping Hands event, which was held at the Don Edwards SF Bay National Wildlife Refuge. While volunteering, Aerohive Bees weeded, watered plants, and spread mulch in the native plant garden. Check out the photos below for a fun visual!

Prior to commencing work, we were treated to a short tour of the various habitats and given a brief orientation to the refuge.

Don Edwards is part of the SF Bay National Wildlife Refuge Complex within the US Fish and Wildlife Service. According to the website:

Following the establishment of Florida's Pelican Island as the first National Wildlife Refuge in 1903, the System has grown to encompass more than 150 million acres within more than 560 Refuges, many Wetland Management Districts, and thousands of Waterfowl Production Areas. More than 41 million people visit National Wildlife Refuges each year to hunt, fish, observe wildlife, and attend environmental education programs.

We thank all Bees who participated and helped us make a difference in our community and encourage others to give volunteering a try. Enjoy the photos of our day.
