Description

The American Bee Project is working to expand forage lands available to beekeepers for rebuilding bee colonies in the face of Colony Collapse Disorder. We advocate on behalf of beekeepers through outreach with State and Local governments and through administrative appeals and court cases. We also educate landowners of the benefits of making land available to beekeepers to strengthen bee colonies.

In this internship, you will study honey bee foraging behavior at our various sites as well as conduct beekeeper surveys. At the current time, we are limiting our entomology internships to 12 hours per month.
