Over the last six years the Bee Girl organization has grown from one person with a passionate vision, love for bees, and two bee hives towed to Oregon from Montana in a uhall, to a thriving nonprofit organization with two staff members, three graduate student interns, seven directors, and a world-wide impact. Sarah Red-Laird, founder and executive director, will take you on the journey of her story, driven by a deep reverence for our honey bees. She’ll also report on her latest education programs and research projects, collaborating with Washington State University, The Farm at Southern Oregon University, and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
Registration is required, and is available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3095096
