Bee Hive Inspection !

What a perfect way to kick-start July 4th weekend. Last Friday, our curators performed beehive inspection with Wile Bee Farm owner Dean Wile.

The Terra Cura incubator farm directly abuts the Stewart/ Person Preserve, a 27 acres Wildland Trust consisting of hiking trails through pine-oak forests, herring ladders, ponds. swampy lowlands and brooks-sides that supports a forest of red maple, yellow birch, sweet pepperbush etc.  As part of our efforts to grow biodiversity at and around our farm lab, Dean has helped us installed 8 hives beginning of June. A real boost to the pollinator population!
