Finding safe homes for Kansas City bees
Honey bees are critical to pollinating field crops and fruit trees across the region — and they make delicious honey. One Kansas City beekeeper helps when these insects make their homes in inconvenient places. Plus: Big dollars are going towards urban tree canopies across the country.
Honeybees may not be native to North America, but they have made themselves crucial to the larger ecosystem thanks to their pollinating prowess. KCUR's Julie Denesha reports on who gets called when bees make their homes in interesting places.
$1.5 billion of the Inflation Reduction Act will go toward urban canopies over the next nine years. Harvest Public Media's Juanpablo Ramirez-Franco reports how this could help communities adapt to the changing climate.
