We are so excited to establish our second demonstration apiary at the Pittsburgh Zoo! Our demo apiaries are where our beekeepers -in-training will practice working with the hives. And there's no more scenic place than the Zoo for this! Here, Francis Pizzi, Curator of Horticulture at the Zoo leads us to the bees' new home on the Zoo's green roof that overlooks the bear exhibit.
Bees and Bears--roommates.
Alex places the hive on a pedestal on the Zoo's beautiful green roof, which is abundant with pollinator plants.
