On April 22, Mayor Joe Hogsett declared the day as “Indianapolis: A Bee-Friendly City Day.” Joined with IPS elementary students at the Artsgarden, the announcement gave recognition to the work of Bee Public. Bee Public is a local beekeeping group, that works to educate the public about honeybees and keeps beehives in public spaces.

The announcement highlighted the importance of bees to the Indianapolis community and showed the community that the Hogsett administration is working towards a more environmentally-friendly city. The Hogsett administration is also an advocate for bees, and is excited for the future of sustainable beekeeping in Indianapolis. He issued a proclamation for advancing Indianapolis as a bee-friendly city.

Save the Bees is an art exhibit currently on display at the Artsgarden in partnership with the Arts Council of Indianapolis, Bee Public, and Earth Charter Indiana. The exhibit features bee-themed artwork from students across the state. The exhibit aims to teach kids about the importance of bees to our environment. It will be up the entire month of April, so catch it while it’s still there!
