"Tough Conversations" is a youth-led webinar series that began in 2020 meant to catalyze conversations on important environmental topics. 

Beekeeping has grown by nearly 8% in the last decade in the United States, with a current average of 2.7 million colonies countrywide. In Vermont, there are currently over 900 beekeepers owning over 14,000 hives. With this boom in beekeeping, there has also been an increase in parasites spreading not only to other captive honeybee hives, but to native bee populations as well. Join us in the latest installation of our “Tough Conversations” webinar series to discuss the full impacts of the keeping of non-native bee species on our native pollinator populations.
