Bees in America

Tammy Horn of Eastern Kentucky University sets up bee hives on “reclaimed” mountain top removal sites with the hope of reviving a dwindling honey bee population and providing a new vocation for the inhabitants of east Kentucky. Tammy plants trees and sows wildflowers on the sites. Vanderbilt students and faculty traveled to the Thunder Ridge coal site ( near Hyden,  Kentucky) on October 6 to take a first hand look at mountain top removal and the idea of reclamation in the form of  bee hive projects.
