POSTPONED - Beekeeping Through the Year: Part 2
S20/22
Will be rescheduled to a later date - TBA 

This course is the second of a three part series focused on the basics of beekeeping and the environmental challenges faced by Apis mellifera. You do not need to sign up for all 3, however, you can receive a discount if you do.

The hives at Edgerton Park will be our classroom as we open them up to try to find the queen and to examine for honey production, the health of the hives and other issues. We will use the small number of suits that Vincent has with him, so if you have a suit, please bring it with you. Note: while bee stings are unlikely because of the time of year and the use of a smoker, there is a chance for that occurrence. Please let us know if you have extreme sensitivity. Bring epi-pen. Consider watching the film which we will be taking of the event instead of attending.

Have you ever been completely flummoxed by the idea of keying out a plant sample in order to ID it – whether in the Master Gardener office, or in your own back yard?
