Brian Peterson-Roest, Professor & Recipient of the Presidential Award in Mathematics & Science Teaching & Michigan Science Teacher of the Year Brian founded the non-profi t organization Bees in the D, which is devoted to the education and conservation of honeybees and other pollinators. The organization has more than 200 hives at 63 various locations. We will be introduced to a wide variety of native and non-native bees. Brian will specifi cally examine the super organism known as the honeybee colony by exploring their impact on both the food industry and the ecosystem. Finally, we will see how Bees in the D is creating a Bee Highway to help support the health and wellness of our pollinators.
