Reclamation Honey Bee Project:
Resulting from the 2006-2007 NEH Chair of Appalachian Studies Fellowship, the Reclamation Honey Bee Project is a collaborative project in which bee hives are placed at Big Elk Mine and Robinson Forest. Participation with beekeepers who live on surface-mined land are also included. We are using bees to gauge new forestry reclamation practices and honey production potential. This project will be expanded in 2007-2008 to include reclamation sites owned by ICG.
