Mayor Michael J. Gonnelli and the Town Council are pleased to announce that our environmental team, along with the Hudson River Apiary Society, has extracted over 100 jars of honey from Secaucus’ bee-hives. “The honey tastes great and we’re happy to do something that will benefit our environment and our honey bee population,” says Mayor Gonnelli.  The environmental team has sold 40 jars so far, so be sure to call and reserve yours today!

The Hudson River Apiary Society provided the supplies, took care of the bees and extracted honey from the hives that are located next to the Secaucus Animal Shelter. All of the proceeds from the sold honey will go back to the Apiary Society and additional donations to the bee program are appreciated.

Just this month, seven species of bees were added to the National Endangered Species List. In addition to providing the honey, bees are responsible for the pollination of our favorite fruits and vegetables. Without them, our gardens would be dull and our diets void of nutrients.
