Love the work you do and the webinars you host. But an event to encourage an invasive species that is damaging the ecosystem is uncalled for. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-problem-with-honey-bees/ We should all be on a strict vegetarian diet and know better than to steal the hard worked for food of another species. It's double bad when we farm honey bees and then exploit them.

I believe PPAN's work focuses only on pollinators (insects, birds, bats, etc.) native to Colorado, not honey bees. The "Bumble Bee" in the title refers to any bee in the genus Bombus, many of which are native to the state. That, and I think the honey products of the event are just for theming.
