When Chloe learned of the native stem nesting bees plight, she got right to work. She was one of the first to join the MN 4-H Pollinator Ambassadors, and helped make Bee & Bee Kits available to 4-Hers all over Minnesota. She has also held classes, in person and via zoom, with 4-H, schools, and libraries.
As a volunteer for both The Bee & Bee Project and the 4-H Pollinator Ambassadors, Chloe has helped with plantings from small landscapes up to seeding a new pollinator prairie.
Chloe has been volunteering to run programs, presentations, and set up displays to share her message through local libraries.
Many of Chloe’s 4-H projects are centered around The Bee & Bee Project! It’s another way for her to spread awareness.
Chloe has made donations of books to the library, placed Bee & Bees at non-profit facilities, and even given away free Bee & Bees to her community members.
The best way to help Native Bees is by offering them habitat, food, and water.

Here are the top supporters of our project!
The UMN SouthWest RSDP gave The Bee & Bee Project a grant of $20 which was used towards starting pollinator friendly plants.
After Chloe told them about her project they were generous to send her tons of native seeds to get her started.
Chloe asked if they could give her information on pollinator friendly plants and received a starter package to plant locally.
Thanks to the ambassador leaders for helping obtain official Bee & Bee stickers and of course for believing whole heartedly in The Bee & Bee Project!
John Knisley is a Master Naturalist and Orchardist at Alternative Roots Farm in Madelia, MN. He helped The Bee & Bee Project put on a presentation all about native bees!
We couldn’t have learned all we have without books from our library, or spread our message without putting on presentations and putting up educational displays. A BIG THANKS goes to Morgan Public Library!
