In Greene Chapel

  • Save the Bees: When thousands of bees were found living in the roof of the chapel, Hendrix humanely – and painstakingly – saved and relocated the hive. Part of the chapel’s roof had to be dismantled, and from atop a 40-foot platform workers gently removed the honeycomb and scooped the bees – one handful at a time – into a swarm box. The bees were given to a philosophy professor who sponsors the Hendrix Beekeeping Society. A similar approach was taken a few years ago to relocate bats that nested in the attic of Martin Hall.
