Theresa Yatchak, 16, of Milwaukee, Wis., a member of Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast and a junior at Divine Savior Holy Angels High School, is the founder of the “’Bee’ Aware Interest Group” at the Urban Ecology Center, which helps fight the declining bee population by spreading awareness, participating in local events and implementing two functioning hives in the Milwaukee area. Theresa was inspired to start the group after learning about her neighbor’s backyard hives.
