Beginning Beekeeping Seminar

Many people know that honeybees are in trouble, but do you know why?
Would you like to find out? Would you like to learn what you can do to help the decline?
Or, have you ever thought of keeping bees and harvesting the honey yourself?

Find out all this and more from a local beekeeper at this beginners course!
You’ll learn what to do and what not to do in order to help bees survive. We’ll also discuss agricultural and habitat practices that are adversely affecting honeybees, and what we can do to improve our landscapes for the bees. 
You can even learn the basics of backyard beekeeping to start your own apiary right out your back door. This entertaining and informative forum will show you all the basics.
