LCMR Beekeepers – Students in Karren Barr’s biology and flower shop classes at Lower Cape May Regional High School are learning about the importance of bees and how to become beekeepers. In the winter of 2006, the honey bee population began to die out. Since then, as much as 70 percent of some bee populations have died as a result of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Seventy farm grown crops, about one-third of the natural food supply, rely on honey bees for pollination. The students have learned that they can help restore the honey bee population with a bee-friendly garden.
