Our Bee Campus USA Committee includes our campus Grounds Manager along with three faculty members (two from the Plant and Soil Science Department and one from the Chemistry Department) as well as the officers of the UVM Beekeepers Club. We meet once annually to discuss what the educational and programmatic activities will be for the coming academic year. These activities on campus are typically conducted under the direction of the UVM Horticulture Club and the UVM Beekeepers Club. The University of Vermont Bee Campus USA Committee is working towards developing a website that will include all of our group's web-related resources in one location.
