Proud to Bee a 4-H'er

Proud to Bee a 4-H’er introduces 4-H members to the vital role pollinator bees play in creating a healthy ecosystem and a sustainable food supply. This initiative explores SDG 15 – Life on Land and provides 4-H’ers with the opportunities to learn about Canada’s pollinator bees and support the creation of healthy ecosystems in their communities.

To date, we've provided over 150,000 pollinator seed packets to 4-H members and clubs across Canada.

Activity Book

The Proud to Bee a 4-H’er Activity Book will guide youth through learning about the amazing and fascinating work of Canada’s pollinators while getting outsides to enjoy nature.

A digital version of the Activity Book will be available for download in late May 2022.

This resource can be used by youth individually, by families at home, or by leaders and their 4-H clubs who are gathering virtually or in person.

Activity Kit

The Activity Kit contains packets of the pollinator-friendly seed mix, pollinator info cards that youth can share with their friends and community, and copies of the Activity Book.

You can use your pollinator-friendly seeds however you like – whether that’s planting a community garden, selling them as a fundraiser, handing packets out at a community event, planting gardens in your homes, or whatever else you choose. 100% of any revenue from seed sales will stay with your 4-H club.

Registration to receive an Activity Kit has closed and kits will ship in April 2022. Check out Activity Book above in April for more pollinator fun!

While the Activity Kit has materials for some of the activities, you can still use the Activity Book to explore the pollinators in your backyard.
