When you ask most people what bees do, their first reaction is to say they make honey.  Some people will mention, in addition to making delicious honey, the important role bees play in our survival by pollinating many of our crops. However, many people still don't realize that these essential animal pollinators are in trouble.  More importantly, they don't realize they can help.

That's where the non-profit Long Island Beekeepers Club enters the picture. Their work includes educating the general public regarding the beneficial impact bees have in the pollination of fruits, vegetables, and flowers, and to endeavor to reassure the public that keeping honeybees is a highly advantageous activity.  Among its many objectives, this group provides educational programs designed for improved promotion of beekeeping, and bee products and services for beekeepers on Long Island.
