The Bees' Needs: A collaboration between Kingston conservation commission and Sanborn Regional High School

What do you get when you give 135 high school sophomores an armload of heavy pointed shovels, pick-axes, and hacksaws, and send them off into the woods?

Well, that’s not a joke, so don’t wait for a punchline.

What you get are acres of field and wooded areas made more inviting to bees, monarch butterflies, birds, and even rabbits: all of the flying and crawling critters whose actions help pollinate plant life and perpetuate the natural cycles that keep interdependent plant and animal species healthy. The day-long field event was the culmination of a month-long study at Sanborn Regional High School, working in collaboration with the Kingston conservation commission, on the essential role of biodiversity in ecosystems.
