One of the key elements of the team’s awareness project was creating a NC Save The Honey Bee specialty license plate. Revenue from this plate will help fund educational outreach materials and other ongoing expenses related to the Honey Bee Habitat on Grandfather mountain, as well as supporting honey bee research at NC State University.

North Carolina “Save the Honey Bee” License Plate Initiative.

UPDATE:  The DMV required 500 completed orders to be turned in by the end of March. ( We turned in over 550 by the March deadline ) Thank you to all those who helped us get the initial 550 orders!

Our plate is currently waiting for a vote of the NC legislatures to be passed as a bill. Once this happens our Save the Honey Bee plate will be a featured as a permanent DMV specialty plate option.

Our Save The Honey Bee specialty plate, offered at just $15, will be the cheapest full background specialty plate offered in North Carolina!


We are no longer accepting applications, but you can order your plate at the same price ($15) from the North Carolina DMV specialty plate website later this summer.
