The trickle-down water wall will provide drinking water — free of chemicals, pesticides and other contaminates — for honey bees, hummingbirds and other pollinators throughout the year. Water is as essential to our area's honey bees as it is to your pets. They use it to cool their hives during hot summers, and mix it with pollen and nectar to produce the special food (bee bread) to feed their young larvae.
Our Savannah summers may require a single colony to consume up to a quart of water every day. The CEBA bee yard will be expanding to 12 colonies by May, so the bees will need up to 3 gallons of water per day! Our scheduled completion date is June 1, 2018.
We gladly accept donations here via Paypal. If you have any questions about the water wall or making a donation, please email us!
