February 10, 2014 at 11:45 PM

CHATHAM, NJ - Mayor Bruce Harris is seeking members for his community beekeeper club that he plans to launch this year near River Road in Chatham Borough.

"We want to meet with people interested in being beekeepers," Harris said. "We've scheduled a meeting for Thursday, Feb. 20, at 7:30 at Borough Hall for those who are interested in being a community beekeeper."

Harris' goal is to help increase the bee population, which, he noted, is very important to the environment. Professional beekeepers will help set the club up for the community beekeepers. In the meantime, Harris has been doing some research on what bees like.

"We're looking into planting things that are attractive to bees," Harris said. "Turns out, milkweed is attractive to bees and also monarch butterflies, which are scarce as well."
