Landscape architect David Arnal has been keeping bees since 1988, when he was given five hives while at Clemson University.

“I loved it,” he said. “You don’t just become a beekeeper; the bees pick you.”

Today, his five hives have grown to 40, and he is the president of the Beaufort-Jasper Beekeepers Association. He also is the beekeeper for hives at community gardens in Hilton Head Plantation and Port Royal Plantation, as well as at the Coastal Discovery Museum and St. Francis Catholic School.
