Bees, Honey, and the SeaTac Airport
There’s a lot of talk these days about how important bees are to our eco-system, but having honey bee hives at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport sounds crazy! Well, that’s exactly why The Common Acre put them there. Listen to this episode of Science Friday with Ira Flatow to find out why this seemingly odd combination is by design.
And congratulations to Bob Redmond of both The Common Acre and Urban Bee Company (who we're proud to be working with on an upcoming project), on the great interview and well deserved press on the two organization's restorative efforts. Power to the bees!
