Gimme a bee
Last fall, UNCG marked the opening of the Plant and Pollinator Center, the first research facility in the nation to focus on both plants and pollinators. It includes a molecular research laboratory space, a field lab space, a community engagement room for classroom instruction and meetings, and the field station, which is made up of the apiary, pollinator-friendly green space, and an experimental planting area.
The new center, located at Gateway Research Park North in Browns Summit, will serve not only UNCG students and faculty, but the community at large through programs for beekeepers, master gardeners, and school groups.
