'This is Penn State' salutes the hard-working honeybee

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State’s Center for Pollinator Research is the bee’s knees.

Committed to studying the factors impacting pollinator health and developing and implementing creative approaches to pollinator conservation, the center is on the front lines of a fight to help the hard-working honeybee that along with other insects pollinates three-fourths of America’s crops.

In the latest episode of “This is Penn State,” we salute the honeybee and it’s advocates like center director Christina Grozinger. And we let you know how you can help an insect currently threatened on multiple fronts.
