Local Pollinators

Pollinator Week

Day 7 - Tamberly




So here’s the scenario: ⠀
The people who know you best are gathered into a room together and asked to figure out what they agree are one of your “worst” and “best” features. What would they come up with?

“Many of my best busy bee friends call me Tamberbee. Many of those friends know that I’m absolutely awful at playing the game of darts. Now, as a bee, that might pose all kinds of issues in regards to hitting the bull’s-eye on a flower target.

On the other hand, I am extremely talented at shooting sports, and have been named as a Distinguished Firearms Expert. I think my other bee friends might send this particular Tamberbee out in search of pollen, since I could hit the center flower target, without a doubt, but only after I bring everyone together through a little Zumba buzz waggle dance!”

Tamberly, a.k.a. Tamberbee, is our cross-pollinating pal and Forest Ranger friend who works for the US Forest Service as a partnerships, diversity and inclusion specialist. Bringing people and organizations together in support of pollinator conservation and many other initiatives that help people connect to the land is what this local pollinator does day in and day out.

Tamberly also recently became an association of nature and forest therapy certified guide, opening doors to the healing of the forest, helping people to reconnect with themselves, one another and the land. She will be guiding her first forest therapy walk as a ANFT certified guide this very weekend on El Yunque National Forest in Puerto Rico! She also recently founded Conservation Conexions in support of this globally expanding work in helping people to see and understand their relationship to the more-than-human-world.

We couldn’t be more grateful for the work Tamberly is doing out in the world, not the mention her tireless support of The Good of the Hive in so many ways! Learn more about her work here.
