From Jaya Sahihi ’17:
Did you know that there are two beehives on Wesleyan’s campus? We, Wesleyan Beekeepers, are a freshly-forming group who hope to teach the art of beekeeping to fellow students and inspire an overall awareness and appreciation for honeybees (insects that are integral to the pollination of our food).
We are having our kick-off meeting on Monday, September 8th, at 10pm in the UOC and we want YOU (and whatever form of bee experience you have) to be there!
Date: Tomorrow, September 8th
Place: UOC (190 High Street)
Beez in the trap and Matilda Ostow ’17 and Erin McGrath ’16 are here to help you get them
Hey honeys! We have been dormant as a club this winter, but are waking up from hibernation and are so so excited to do lovely things this spring! SO come this Monday, February 10th to our second Beekeeping Meeting in the Observatory Room 110 at 7! Even if you weren’t able to make it to our first meeting last semester, we would love to see your face as we begin planning our activities, lectures and more for the rest of this year. Shoot us an email at emcgrath[at]wesleyan[dot]edu if you’re planning on attending so we can let you know if there’s a change in schedule or location.
Date: Monday, February 8th
Place: Observatory Room 110
From Tyler Rioff ’14:
Always wanted to learn more about the beautiful and fascinating creatures that support our entire ecosystem? Interested in someday helping to take care of Wesleyan’s very own bees?
You may not be aware that Long Lane now has two hives being prepared for the coming winter. We hope you’ll join us for the first meeting of the Wesleyan Beekeepers to discuss very generally the future directions of this group. Bring your ideas, hopes, and dreams for creating a buzzing bee culture on campus for years to come.
Once we’ve done some talking and aptly themed snacking, we’ll be showing the acclaimed documentary film Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? Hope to see you soon.
Date: Tuesday, November 5
Time: 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Place: 41 Wyllys, Room 110
