iSeeChange: Backyard Bees
As awareness about the critical role bees play in agriculture grows, so has interest in backyard bee keeping. For KVNF and the iSeeChange project, Julia Kumari Drapkin looks into questions that North Fork Valley beekeepers have about bee swarms this year.
You can see a video of Rita Clagett’s honeybees on the iSeeChange and the KVNF Facebook pages. Stay tuned for more iSeeChange animal stories later this month.
Produced by Julia Kumari Drapkin, the iSeeChange project at KVNF is part of Localore, a nationwide production of AIR designed to accelerate transformation and extend public service media to all Americans. KVNF was selected as one of only 10 Localore stations across the country—learn more at airmediaworks.org. Localore is funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Wyncote Foundation, the John T. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Interactive storytelling partner Zeega co-produced TheAlmanac.org with iSeeChange.
