A Linden tree in Columbia Park fell during recent windstorms. Several neighbors discovered it housed a nest of honeybees and were concerned about their survivability. With the support of Portland Parks & Recreation, they contacted the owner of 18 Bees who successfully relocated the nest to a location near Mt. Hood. Hopefully the queen survived the impact and the hive will thrive in their new home.
This is a sweet example of the power of partnership between the community and Portland Parks & Recreation. Keep it up!
