Host a Beehive – help bees POLLINATE Your neighborhood!
 

Host a Beehive – help bees POLLINATE Your neighborhood!

HOST A BEEHIVE – HELP BEES POLLINATE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

How to contribute – If you have an organic farm, a pesticide-free large yard or garden, an area full of fruit trees or native flowering plants, a flat roof with flowering vegetation nearby, you have the perfect home for honeybees.

Pollination services – The bees and equipment remain ours but in return you’ll reap the benefits of pollination without the training and hassle of opening a hive full of bees.

Rewards – Once the colony produces more honey than the bees need, we’ll extract the extra honey and share two pounds of raw treatment free honey with you per hive.

Benefits – By hosting a honeybee hive in your own backyard, you can do your part to help save the honey bees one colony at a time.

Hosting a hive is a great way to help increase the honeybee population in your local area.

An apiary is a place where beekeepers keep bees and beehives for the production of honey.

Essentially it is a bee farm, whether small or large, and the beekeeper is an apiarist.

Domestic honeybees are a critical part of the global ecosystem and of agriculture in particular, because they pollinate up to one-third of all crops that contribute to food production.

Preserving and increasing the U.S. honey bee population has become more important than ever in recent years as parasites, disease, pesticides and loss of habitat have decreased the bee population across the country from 6 million managed honey bee colonies in 1947 to just 2.5 million in 2014.

This problem threatens more than $15 billion in U.S. fruit, vegetable and nut production, because yield depends on the pollination process. In an effort to restore the numbers to healthy levels, the federal government, sometimes through individual states and sometimes directly, has made grant funds available for businesses that raise honey bees.

LA County WIFI Locator Tool
 

LOS ANGELES COUNTY LAUNCHES NEW WIFI LOCATOR TOOL TO HELP RESIDENTS GET ONLINE DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Los Angeles, CA (Friday, May 15, 2020) —  The ability to access the Internet has become a critical necessity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Internet access is key to schools’ online learning programs, and is the gateway that connects members of the public who are in need of Federal, State, and local emergency information and resources that are obtained online.

However, the reality is that this essential tool has remained out of reach for many. According to American Community Survey Data for LA County, approximately 210,000 children have a computer at home, but lack an Internet connection. Nearly 283,000 households do not have Internet access.

“Today, Los Angeles County is taking a step forward to bridge the gap of Internet access an issue that during the COVID-19 pandemic can quickly become a matter of survival,” stated Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn. “Disasters can act as catalysts, driving change in how programs and services are offered. The WiFi Locator tool is an example of that. Our new portal and outreach support, performed in partnership with 211 LA County, will equip LA County residents with a one-stop-shop approach to getting Internet access.”

The County’s new Locator website is findwifi.lacounty.gov. Any member of the public can dial 2-1-1 to ask for assistance to get information from this website, or can visit the site directly. The website features a search tool, based on the user’s physical address, to connect them to various Internet related services, such as Internet access services for students, the location of free WiFi spots throughout the County (including free hotspots located in or nearby County libraries and County parks) and contact information for both residential and commercial broadband Internet providers and mobile (cellular) Internet providers serving the address.
