Have you looked at a box of Cheerios lately?

Something is missing – and that would be Buzz the Bee.

According to General Mills, the world’s bee population collapsed by 42% in 2015.

That news prompted the famous cereal brand to begin a #BringBackTheBees campaign in 2016.

This year, they’ve decided to kick start a national campaign, and they’ve chosen Texas A&M Corpus Christi as a campus to help spread the word.

General Mills has provided 100 million seeds across the U.S. in hopes that by the year 2020, there will be 3,300 acres filled with nectar and pollinating wildflowers. 

A portion of those seeds will be going to the TAMU-CC campus.

There will be a planting party on the back patio of the dining hall starting at 11 a.m.

With help from the Islander Green Team and the Islander Wave Newspaper, there will be composting materials to help plant all of the seeds.
