30+ years in the BSA from Asst.Den Leader through District Advancement Committee and a slue of positions between including being on the District Training Committee.

I am sure I can get several more to sign up from the Loudoun Beekeepers (Loudoun VA) as they have a great class for beginning beekeepers.

I helped our Bee Keeper maintain three hives when I was younger, but then we moved and had a desire but no time to keep bees. Well all that has changed so I started up last year... what a rocky start... bees came late.... three weeks...... Then after about a month to 5 weeks in the queen decided to swarm, Mid July. In Maine that is not a good time, so I started to be bee maid to my girls, watched them create new queen, prayed she would stay, and she did.... but they did not have a lot of time to create comb, honey and gather pollen. This proved to be a stressful time for them and me, my mentor said he would have given up on them and see what happened, but ultimately they would die off. I stuck it out and now they are thriving. During this entire time I have three Boy Scouts, I am the leader, ask to visit the hive with myself and their dad.... They did and were amazed.
So to the post I will be a Bee Keeping MBC, two hobbies I enjoy, Scouts and Bee Keeping... why not place them together to learn something. Insect study is the current Badge that has a section on Bee's but it does no justice to it at all, what othr insect does so much for the environment, flowers, or medical remedies?

I pledge to be a Beekeeping Merit Badge Councilor.  Scouting was a big part of my younger years. Growing up in a big city in the 60/70s Scouting kept me away from drugs and taught me morals and values I carry to this day.

I am fairly new to beekeeping but am very active in my local club. Members of the club are very interested in the kids getting into the hobby. Tapping them to be councilors as well would present no problems.
