Bees on Campus
Did you know there are hives of honeybees at Edmonds Community College (which is where I'm busy teaching when I'm not busy writing about bees)? If you scroll down a little on this page about some of the campus efforts around sustainability and food, you'll find a little background info about the bees as well as links to four issues of the "Bee Facts" newsletter with the latest Edmonds CC bee news. The bees moved in during April of 2011, thanks to Chemistry instructor Mary Whitfield. There's also a nice article about bees on campus in the Edmonds Sphere blog.
