Last year we reintroduced beehives to the campus landscape. Four of the five bee colonies survived the winter and were in good shape this spring. The bees are very advantageous to have on campus. They are great pollinators for our fruit trees, our vegetables in the associate gardens, the shrubs and perennials in our campus beds, and for all of the wildflowers in our prairies. The hives are located in an area that is hidden and away from associate traffic. Undisturbed, the bees go about their business undetected. How cool?!
