Bee Campus USAIn Spring 2018, the Owens Findlay-area Campus became the 36th educational institution in the nation to be certified as an affiliate of the Bee Campus USA program and the first in the state of Ohio.

The Bee Campus USA program fosters ongoing dialogue to raise awareness of the role pollinators play in our communities and what each of us can do to provide them with a healthy habitat. As a certified Bee Campus, we are committed to pollinator-friendly practices on campus such as planting native plants and pollinator-friendly habitats and conduct educational outreach to our local community.

Pollinator populations such as the honeybee are in serious peril, mostly due to habitat loss and pesticides. Honeybees have a fascinating biology and social structure and provide many educational opportunities for our campus and the community, and we look forward to sharing them!

The five beehives in our community garden were made possible by generous financial support from the Owens Faculty Association.

One in three bites of food that humans eat are pollinator dependent and pollinators are an integral part in the reproduction of 90% of the world’s wild plants.
