The buzz at Kennedy
Submitted By Kristi Ojigho
Honey Bees living in the base of an Olive tree in front of John F. Kennedy High School's Main Office faced an unexpected trip as groundskeepers explored alternatives to relocation of the swarm. However, to save the bees from extermination, the base of the tree was excavated in July to remove the swarm for relocation. The bees were saved and a new Glendora white Crape Myrtle tree will be planted in same location. Although a bit skinny compared to the previous mature Olive, the new tree will grow rapidly and become a beautiful replacement in the next few years.
