Meet Beeatrice

Her name is Beeatrice but everyone calls her “B.” She loves the outdoors but her family has a history of asthma so when air quality is poor she’s forced to stay in her hive. B checks AirNow daily for the air quality forecast and when it’s not safe to go outside, it’s a total buzzkill! Read More

Some of her favorite activities include stand-up paddle boarding the Arkansas River, buzzing around the Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning, and volunteering at Botanica. You can imagine how important it is to her that air quality remains good! B encourages all her friends and family to help keep the air clean and the community healthy – hey, you can help, too!
