[8/4/2015] Monday's groundbreaking events new $6 million Bee and Pollinator Research Lab were discussed on MPR. The 10,000-square-foot facility will include space for new labs, honey extraction and hive spaces where researchers will be able to closely follow the behavior of individual bees. "We'll have a way to really collaborate on research proposals and on extension and outreach to the public," said entomology professor Marla Spivak. "We'll have one central place where we can reach out to the research community and the public to educate them about bees." Listen to the story.
