Apiary Program Part of District’s Sustainability Initiative
On Sunday, April 29, two honeybee hives were added to the Glencoe Park District greenhouse area, behind Jerry Reinsdorf Field.
"As the Park District, we strive to be a leader in environmental sustainability. Our Board and staff recognize the crucial role honey bees play in our environment and the real danger that colony collapse disorder poses to the overall health of the United States as a whole. By bringing honeybees to Glencoe, we are playing an important role in maintaining and enhancing our ecosystem," said Chris Leiner, Director of Parks.
