Our hives are located in the Seminary Fen Scientific and Natural (SNA) area, a protected area located near Chaska, MN along the scenic Minnesota River. Home to one of the rarest types of wetlands in the United States, a calcareous fen, the unique geological features of this area create an environment that is home to animals and rare plants that thrive in few other places (“Minnesota,” n.d.). Protected in Minnesota since 1991, this and other similar areas cannot be drained, filled, altered or degraded; their unique characteristics provide ideal conditions for rare species of plants like the elusive white lady-slipper (“Minnesota,” n.d.).References
