Welcome to Maine Bee Wellness’s website! Here you’ll find information about us, our programs, bees and other native pollinators in Maine! MEBW strongly believes that while Honey bees are not natives here, there is plenty of room and resources for both them and native pollinators, and that the biggest challenge all bees and pollinators face is having a healthy ecosystem to live in.

 We’re buzzing with the bees in Maine; thank you for finding us!
