Donating for Honey Bee Research


Ways in which we might contribute to the health of honey bees and beekeeping include donations to aid research on honey bees in the Pacific Northwest. Four Oregon funds and their uses are described in Donating to Apiculture Funds: A User's Guide from the January–February 2013 issue of The Bee Line. The procedure for ensuring that donations make it to one of these intended funds (the Northwest Apiculture Fund for Honey Bee Research, Extension, and Education; the OSBA Research Fund; the OSU Honey Bee Lab; and the Scullen Memorial Fellowship) is as follows:
