A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome :

The Ashland Apiary Project is a graduate thesis project to establish an on-campus apiary that will allow a wide audience of students at an elementary, secondary, and collegiate level to study the trade and principles of beekeeping. The Ashland Apiary Project will also conserve biodiversity by enhancing habitat connectivity for pollinators, promoting more ecologically sustainable practices on campus, and protecting critical habitat. Equally important, the Ashland Apiary Project will inspire and inform sustainable practices into the public conscience.
