Bees are essential for life on earth. They help pollinate plants so we have food. But the life of a bee is full of challenges. On this episode of D4K, Host Joan Cartan-Hansen and her guest scientists, Kirk Tubbs and Ron Bitner, will answer students’ questions about bees. We also look inside a hive with bee keeper Heidi Tubbs of Tubbs’ Berry Farm.
