Keystone College’s Environmental Education Institute will present renowned bee ecologist Thomas D. Seeley, Ph.D. on Sunday, May 19 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. in Evans Hall, Hibbard Campus Center.

               The event, which is part of KCEEI’s Living with the Land Lecture Series, will feature a coffee hour, luncheon, and two lectures by Dr. Seeley. The cost is $25 and registration is required. For information and reservations, contact Kelly Stewart, (570) 945-8404 or e-mail KCEEI@keystone.edu. For more information visit www.keystone.edu/kceei.

               Dr. Seeley will discuss aspects of “nature-based” beekeeping which seeks to provide managed honey-bee colonies with living conditions that are as close to possible to those of wild honey bee colonies. He has written several books: Honeybee Ecology: A Study of Adaptation in Social Life, published by Princeton University Press (1985); The Wisdom of the Hive: The Social Physiology of Honeybee Colonies (1996), Honeybee Democracy (2010), Following the Wild Bees: The Craft and Science of Beehunting (2016), The Lives of Bees: The Untold Story of the Honey Bee in the Wild (2019), and Piping Hot Bees (2024).

The Living with the Land Series is funded, in part, by the Wyoming County Room Tax, the Endless Mountains Visitors Bureau, and the Endless Mountains Heritage Region.
