    I very excited and certainly stand behind this program. I am well aware of the issue of the bee declining population .. I realize this has the potential to cause environmental issues. they serve an essential purpose in pollinating plants as well as our crops. Obviosly, this a huge concern Several years ago, the Indiana State Fair gave a presentation about bee pollution and the problem with the the lack of bees. there may be a club associated with this problem but I don’t remember the group you may know. I know this is a serious problem that needs to be addressed. . I would love to participate win any program dedicated to this cause !
