Environmental Studies Students build sustainable new homes for bees!

Matthew Golub, a junior environmental studies major and member of the project, said the idea to build bee houses around Oakland started when he took a sustainability course taught by Ward Allebach, an adjunct environmental studies professor, this past spring. The premise of the course is for students to create a project that aligns with the University’s Sustainability Plan, released in 2018. - By Emily Wen, For The Pitt News - AUGUST 23, 2019
