We harvested our first batch of honey this week—about 4 gallons. Plans are to give some away and use the rest to raise awareness for our Beekeepers Club.

Susquehanna recently became the first university in Pennsylvania to be certified as an affiliate of the Bee Campus USA program.

The university:

  • Maintains three bee hives at the Center for Environmental Education and Research (CEER) on Sassafras Street
  • Founded the student-run Beekeepers Club, which maintains the bee hives at the CEER
  • Planted two large plots of wildflowers to promote pollination
