EAST LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Michigan State University is preparing an on-campus center for studies on pollinators such as honeybees, butterflies, and moths.

A building on the south side of campus is being re-designed as a location for teaching, equipment storage, and outreach. The surrounding 15 acres will be used for pollinator field studies.

Several hundred trees and wildflowers have already been planted and will serve as food for the pollinators.

The center will also apply for certification from the Michigan Department of Agriculture to become a honey-processing facility.
