The Brandon University campus is buzzing again, as honeybee hives have returned for the second year of a pilot project dubbed ‘Bee U’ that demonstrates urban beekeeping in Brandon.

This year’s hives are in a better spot for public viewing and are located on the roof of the Knowles-Douglas Student Union Centre, just outside a bank of plate glass windows that will allow bee-curious people a safe and up-close place to watch the hive activity as well as regular beekeeping duties.
