Beekeeping Class

Cal Poly has had a beekeeping program in some form or another for at least 60 years, but its latest iteration, run by adjunct professors Jeremy Rose and Patrick Frazier, attracts students from all different majors, many of whom start trying to sign up for the class during their first year. Cal Poly was recently recognized as a Bee Campus USA affiliate, which provides a framework for campus communities to work together to conserve native pollinators by increasing the abundance of native plants and providing nest sites.
