The Buzz is…You’ve Been Swarmed:
Bee Inspired Program & Advisory Council Sponsoring Awareness Campaign and Fundraiser During Let’s Talk Month!
October is when leaves are falling, coffee shops are serving up pumpkin-flavored java, and when the Bee Inspired Program celebrates Let’s Talk Month . Each year the Program jumps on board the opportunity to raise awareness and education for crucial conversations on “tough topics”, as well as increasing youth-adult communication. Let’s Talk Month is recognized both locally and nationally. The campaign is dedicated to helping parents, caregivers, and other adults talk to youth about relationships and other sexual health-related topics in an open, honest and comprehensive way. The goal for Bee Inspired Program this October is to encourage youth-adult communication on a variety of health-related topics through teachable moments, activities/events, marketing and a “You’ve Bee Swarmed” fundraiser and awareness Campaign.
The buzz is swarms of bees will be making their appearance across Hamilton and Wright Counties thanks to the Bee Inspired CAPP Program through Building Families, and the Program’s Advisory Council. The bees will be buzzing around the serving area from October 7th-October 30th, with the swarms nesting in yards for two to five days. There will be at least one swarm of bees making their way around both counties, within the city limits of Webster City and Eagle Grove.
Buzzworthy Details on Placing, Relocation, & Removal:
