New HBRC Construction Progress

We are creating a new, iconic facility for honey bee education, research, advocacy and outreach. It will be a destination. A place of excellence in design, function and research, while continuing to execute excellence in research. All in support of the future of honey bees.

Week of December 3, 2023

With the right location and facilities, the HBRC will be able to expand its research and education programs and amplify public outreach.

The new HBRC will be located on Stone Road, east of the current HBRC location and west of Victoria Road. This new site location offers a number of advantages, including re-purposing space that is not currently being used (a former tree nursery that is adjacent to the Arboretum).
