Beekeeping Merit Badge Update

Beekeeping

Beefarming
1911-14

Beekeeping
1956-95
As you may be aware, Christopher Stowell, a Boy Scout and 14 year old beekeeper from Oklahoma, recently led a campaign to reinstate the Beekeeping Merit Badge.

BSA recently announced its response to Christopher’s request, and the news is mostly good. Read more of the story at Robo's World.

3 years after the BSA's partial concession and 50% of the way to the 2015 deadline, and still no changes have been made to the 8 merit badges they claimed would have an increased beekeeping focus.
The present state is still just two partial merit badge requirements in Nature and Insect Study.
