New pad for the bees

The old location we have for the bees is collapsing. We are building a new site with the work of staff, volunteers, and the EDSET student interns from Albany high school on the east side of the creek. An area was cleared of invasive blackberries, concrete pavers were set in the ground for a platform for the bee boxes,  a small bridge was built for the beekeeper Chris Bauer to access the hives. And steps made from the stone pine that came down recently were set into the slope.
