In honor of World Bee Day

We have two new features at our headquarters in Lincoln — an artificial beehive and a pollinator garden.

What is an artificial beehive you might ask?  It’s a man-made structure which houses honeybees.

May 20 was World Bee Day.  To mark the event, Channel 12 interviewed our President, John Marsland, to talk about the new hive and garden. According to John, the garden was made possible by a grant from the RI Foundation.

In addition, there will be plenty of volunteer opportunities throughout the summer including watering the garden, planting and weeding to ensure the honeybees have plenty of fresh flowers to support a healthy hive.

Our Programs

We have many river and watershed programs and educational opportunities. In the past, we have helped individuals meet their court-ordered community service requirements as well as helped students complete their 15 hours of community service to help satisfy their graduation requirements. Students and individuals have fun while completing their requirements and they learn about the river and the environment at the same time. We hope the positive experience stays with them.

Contact us at BRWCFOB@gmail.com. Volunteers are always appreciated. Many hands make light work.
