Staying connected to the land is hard when we can’t travel to the places we love, or hike the trails that are dear to our hearts. But finding ways to get outside, like walking in your neighborhood and utilizing local trails, is vital to our overall wellbeing and happiness.

Our Executive Director Jeffrey Boring tends to his own beehive as a means to stay engaged with nature while staying in his own backyard. Watch him install his new bees here.

Bees are vital to preserving our healthy landscapes. They pollinate the spring wildflowers in the Park and the crops on farms down the valley that feed us. Want to learn more about bees in populated urban areas? Watch this video about beekeeping in downtown Washington D.C.
