"Thank you for your time and sharing of knowledge. My son had an incredible time on the Cedarwood field trip.  As a chaperone on the trip, I was in awe of your patience and gentle guidance with the kids.  Thank you."

"Brian is seemingly able to be everywhere at once, and yet he maintains a very calm presence. You can tell how much the bees respect him and enjoy his company.  He's direct, approachable and very informative. He also seems to have a good time in the midst of what most people would call a crisis. In the world of urban beekeeping, I have met no one more capable and companionable than Brian Lacy."

Shara Alexander, urban beekeeper since 1996

"Thanks for a wonderful experience.  I really enjoyed learning along with the kids."

"Brian rescued a swarm of bees from our neighborhood and found them a good home.  My kids were afraid at first, but Brian showed them how to be close AND safe with the bees. They were both excited and calm at the same time. It was a very fascinating and interesting experience!"

Juniana Grimmu


"Watching Brian remove sheet after sheet of bees from the side of our home was fascinating. He took great care to explain so many details about LiveHoneyBees’ mission, and how to ensure bees can’t get into out home again. Brian seems to know just everything about bees."

"A wonderful program. The kids and adults were mesmerized!"

"Thanks so much!  We have been talking about bees lots since your talk.  Very inspirational!"

“Brian Lacy’s bee program at the Hillsboro Public Library was informative and fascinating! Brian is very passionate about caring for and maintaining healthy bees, and he really offers a visceral and engaging experience through his presentation. I would definitely have him return to our library for another program.”
