Hoping For A Healthy Buzz at COD

This is the second year of a pollination project at College of DuPage. COD’s Prairie Manager Remic Ensweiler set up four honeybee hives near the corner of Fawell and Park Boulevards. That’s where he and Wheaton based bee-keeper Mike Bock met up this week. First Light host Brian O'Keefe joined them for a trip to the hives
