During this course, we will cover the basics of bees and beekeeping, including: bee biology, beekeeping  basics, laws and regulations of beekeeping, diseases and viruses of bees.

A hands-on field day to a beekeeper’s yard will be held April 1st or 2nd—two options for you to choose. This is where you will learn the most about beekeeping!  Must sign a medical release waiver to  participate.  Bee suit provided.
