The Expo Bee Project


The Expo Bee project began in 2021 in partnership with Bridgetown Bees. Our honeybees are selectively bred to survive year-round in the Pacific Northwest, foraging nectar and pollen from the native wetlands that surround the Expo Center. Our first harvest yielded 80 lbs. of honey.

Our project is in response to the collapse of honey bee populations. Since 2006, honeybees have been dying off at an unsustainable rate. This threatens the security of our food supply since honeybee pollination is critical to the cultivation of over a third of our food supply in America.
