Our more-experienced beekeepers are also welcome to attend, but they will be encouraged to break off into a separate discussion group to cover more nuanced and detailed issues, relevant to their specific interests or concerns.
And yes, we do plan to hold sessions about every other month throughout 2019, simply because there is so much to know, speculate, and prognosticate about concerning the tending of honeybees and their complex social behaviors.
Led by Mike Kramer, one of our local beekeepers and the consultant for the Nature Center’s observation beehive, the event will be both entertaining and educational. Basic hive boxes and equipment will be on hand for demonstrations. In addition, the observation hive at the Center has survived the cold snap in good to excellent condition and their home in the winter nuc will be on hand for inspection.
The Andresen Nature Center is located at 409 North 4th Street in Fulton, immediately adjacent to Heritage Canyon.
This will again be a truly educational, engaging, and - perhaps at times if we’re feeling mischievous – a somewhat controversial event, so don’t miss it!
