Become A Bee Ambassador In Kelowna!

Pol­li­na­tors, respon­si­ble for 1 out of every 3 bites of food we eat, are in per­il due to pes­ti­cides, dis­ease, and loss of habi­tat. Work­ing togeth­er as a com­mu­ni­ty, we can change this tra­jec­to­ry to sup­port the over 380 bee species native to the Okana­gan through the con­ser­va­tion and cre­ation of pol­li­na­tor-friend­ly habi­tats.

Our goal is to link our over 100 Nec­tar Trail Bee Ambas­sadors (who signed up in 2017) to anoth­er 200 Ambas­sadors across the city so we can cre­ate a net­work of flow­ery step­ping-stones through­out our urban land­scape. If you have a home, busi­ness, school or orga­ni­za­tion that would like to become a Bee Ambas­sador, make sure you can meet the com­mit­ments below and then sign up on this web­site! Sign up before June 30, 2018.

Bee Ambassador Commitments:
  • Plant and care for a min­i­mum one-square meter bed of rec­om­mend­ed bee-friend­ly flow­ers.
  • Choose drought-tol­er­ant, pes­ti­cide-free plants that bloom from spring to fall.
  • Leave bare spots for wild bees to dig and nest in.
  • Put up a sign in a spot vis­i­ble to the pub­lic.
  • Com­mit to telling neigh­bours what you’re doing and get one or two more peo­ple to jump on board.
  • Send us pho­tos of bees, you and your gar­den!
  • Reg­is­ter To Become A Bee Ambas­sador

    ***The first 200 Ambas­sadors are guar­an­teed an Ambas­sador Pack­age. We will con­tin­ue to pro­vide pack­ages beyond that num­ber until we are out of funds to pro­duce them!

    Bor­der Free Bees is grate­ful for the sup­port of a Go Wild Com­mu­ni­ty grant from the World Wildlife Fund Cana­da for the funds that make this pro­gram pos­si­ble.
