Bee and Pollinators Restoration Program

The Stateline Beekeepers Association will meet at 6:00 P.M. Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Stephenson County Farm Bureau, 210 W. Spring St., Freeport.

Ellen Star is a Biologist with USDA for 17 years. She will speak on how to develop pollinator habitat to help bring back the dwindling pollinator populations. Her presentation will include slides and information on native prairie plants and a variety of seasonal flowering plants that provide the pollinators with food rich in pollen and sugar-laden nectar.

Attendees are asked to bring a snack to pass.


Our meetings typically include a discussion about our recent experiences with beekeeping. Lots of valuable information is shared among our members.
