The Bee Cause Project inspires the next generation of environmental stewards while protecting our planet’s precious pollinators. We offer a variety of grants to schools and non-profit organizations across North America, Canada, and beyond. Through our Honey Bee Grants, Pollinator Literacy Grants, and Pollinator Habitat Grants, we strengthen the connection our participants share with pollinators and enable curious minds to thrive. All of our grants include equipment and resources, providing a STEAM-based curriculum that brings the natural world into the classroom.

Bring Curiosity to Your Classroom.
The Bee Cause Project has been working hard to add more resources for our educators! We have created OER Commons to provide digital assets including curriculums, virtual field trips with lessons, suggested Citizen Science Projects, book clubs for kids with lessons, and relevant webinars and recordings to help you deliver quality instruction. Many of our offerings have educator guides, are mapped to the standards, and are easily adapted to digital platforms. Our most successful programs begin with layers of lessons, curriculum, and labs to foster the excitement and love of learning about the honey bee and other pollinators. With or without live bees on your campus, we will help to grow a community around your buzzworthy educational endeavors!
“Bees live as people should live: naturally, symbiotically, and in a manner that only contributes positively to the world around them.”
– Ted Dennard, Co-Founder of The Bee Cause Project
Small Creatures. Big Lessons.
The Bee Cause Project and our tiny partners, the bees, work to engage students of all ages with their own environments through observation based learning. Our STEAM-based curriculum, educational hives, and international network build learning opportunities in classrooms and communities, in order to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.
Nothing but the best, and it supports our mission too!
We love to celebrate honey here at The Bee Cause Project, if you do too why not order our private label honey from Savannah Bee Company! A portion of the proceeds supports The Bee Cause! While you are there try some of the other great honey flavors available at Savannah Bee.
