Kenneth Naumann wrote about the apiary that’s beside the garden in the college’s scholarly activity newsletter.
There were three main reasons to bring honey
bees to campus: educational, environmental,
and the sheer joy of watching honey bees at
work. From an educational point of view, the
workings of honey-bee societies illustrate
important biological concepts such as the origin
and organization of social behaviour, foraging
strategies, and interactions with flowering
plants and other organisms. Honey bees are
also simply fascinating. Whenever I work at the
colonies, someone is sure to come by and ask
questions. In the future, groups of students will
be taken on interior tours of the hives, and the
bees may be used for small research projects.
