Behind the sign: Portland Protectors works to make the community safe for bees (and all of us!)

Avery Yale Kamila and Maggie Knowles, co-founders of Portland Protectors, are the driving
force behind a local movement to change attitudes about pesticide use. Their small white “Bee
Safe” signs are popping up on lawns all across southern Maine. Through education and
advocacy, they are making places safe for wildlife, children and families one public space and
private yard at a time. The Bee Line had a chance to talk with them about their efforts and learn
what beekeepers can do to promote healthier communities for our bees and ourselves.
