This is the Troop 202 beekeeping blog. We will use it to post records of our activities with the hives so we can keep track of their progress. The beekeeping merit badge was dropped from the official BSA list of approved merit badges in 1995. The scouts of troop 202 are working on the merit badge just the same. The merit badge will not count toward rank advancement but the scouts will learn valuable skills and will contribute to the health of the environment in Salt Lake City.
