A Gift for Modern Pollinators: Exploring Olana’s Legacy Landscape with Fox Farm Apiary
Saturday, April 23, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$10 – $15
Join Fox Farm Apiary’s Beekeeper Chris Layman to celebrate Earth Day at Olana during this special Environmentalists on Olana focusing on pollinators. Chris will discuss the legacy of Frederic Church’s artist-designed landscape and the flora that provide abundant nutrition for bees and other pollinators generation after generation. Through this lens, participants will learn more about Olana’s honeybees, the many native bees that also inhabit the landscape, and why they matter. Chris Layman manages the honeybee hives in Olana’s historic farm complex and together with his wife, Lisa, owns and operates Fox Farm Apiary in Greene County. Fox Farm Apiary manages several apiaries including hives at Opus 40, Greene Land Trust and the Woodstock Land Conservancy.
