Honey bees are the Pier’s newest residents, occupying two hives on the People’s Energy Welcome Pavilion’s green roof. The Chicago Honey Co-op help maintain the hives and keep the bees happy.
Bees and other pollinators are responsible for 35% of our global food supply, so supporting them is really important. Their presence at the Pier helps bolster their numbers while making our green spaces vibrant.
So next time you’re passing through, pay a visit to our friendly, local pollinators – they won’t bother you if you don’t bother them!
