Participate in UB Bees environmental initiative to help grow UB's mission of sustainability.
Manage and conduct research on the honeybee hives on UB's North Campus. Harvest honey, run workshops, connect with community partners and organizations to donate honey and beeswax to, and participate in all other honeybee and pollinator related activities. Come up with new ideas for how to grow and better assist honeybees and pollinators at UB and in the WNY community.
Depending on nature of student engagement (research, program outreach, workshop development, creative project), the outcome will be different but appropriate to the work accomplished.
