The Bee Cause Project

Wildlife Conservation

The Bee Cause Project is a Charleston, SC, based non-profit organization that works to engage students of all ages with their own environments through observation-based learning. The organization’s 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. Ted Dennard, a lifelong beekeeper and the founder of Savannah Bee Company, and Tami Enright, a fellow beekeeper and environmental educator, had both dedicated their lives to protecting pollinators. The pair partnered to install the first observation hive at Sullivan’s Island Elementary School, and shortly after, The Bee Cause Project became a 501c3 and later secured a national partnership with the Whole Kids Foundation. Alongside the Bee Cause Project sponsors, beekeepers, educators, and community members, the organization has since provided Bee Grants to more than 650 schools and organizations, impacting thousands of children across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico.

RELiON has partnered with the Bee Cause Project and will fund 15 educational grants in South Carolina schools. These grants include educational materials and habitats for the pollinators. We look forward to educating the next generation on the importance of bees and all pollinators.
