Reinstate the Boy Scout Beekeeping merit badge

Christopher Stowell

We’d like to introduce you to Christopher Stowell, a Boy Scout in Troop 250, Skiatook, OK. Christopher recently asked our help. He is submitting a proposal to the National Boy Scout Council to reinstate the Boy Scout Beekeeping merit badge which was discontinued in 1995.

Christopher says, “I believe that now more than ever before the survival of the honey bee is important to all. If other boys are not encouraged to learn how to become beekeepers, the honey bee will surely die out. Not only do I feel this way, but beekeepers all across America believe in the importance of teaching the younger generations the importance of the honey bee."

He not only enlisted our help but has also contacted beekeeping organizations across the country for their endorsement and pledge that they will help train the Boy Scouts interested in beekeeping.

We encourage you to send the letter for Christopher. Feel free to add your own thoughts in the designated area. We will print and send all of the letters to Christopher at the end of June to support his proposal.

You can also sign a petition at The Experience Project website to show your support.

Good luck Christopher! We appreciate your hard work!
