Feb 2024 Monthly Meeting
February 13 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Julia Mahood, will present “Game of Drones”, maligned as shiftless gadabouts, these guys actually have a well-hidden repertoire of interesting behaviors. You won’t feel the same about drones after you hear this talk. Julia’s fascination with drone honey bees and especially Drone Congregation Areas, has led her on a quest to find as many as she can across her Georgia community.
Julia is a Georgia Master Crafts beekeeper from Atlanta. Julia has been keeping bees since 2004. She created the citizen science website MapMyDca.com to gather data on drone congregation areas. Julia was awarded the Georgia Beekeeper of the year in 2018. A graphic artist, she designed the Georgia “Save the honey bee” license plate. She is passionate about education and teaches beekeeping in Georgia prisons and is active in her local and state bee organizations.
The EMBA will provide light refreshments and social time beginning at 6:30pm, the presentations will start at 7:00 pm. Our meetings are open to everyone. See you there!
