How to promote healthy pollinators
January 16, 2020
Christi Henthorn is a journeyman beekeeper with Wuerker Bee Apiary, of North Carolina. She describes herself on her website as a native of Wisconsin and an Alaskan transplant, currently raising bees on the east coast. She was visiting Wrangell to host a "Beekeeping 101" class for community members interested in doing so, as well as giving a talk on how to promote "healthy pollinators" in the area.
"The honey bee's the poster child for promoting and saving pollinators, because everyone can relate to the honey bee because she makes honey, and almost everybody likes honey," Henthorn said.
