Great Plains Master Beekeeping Open Apiary September
September 17 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Open Apiary times are an informal, unstructured gathering. There will be brief demonstrations, questions and answers, and time to get hands-on experience with beehives. Open Apiary will count as 2 hours of field training toward your progress through the Great Plains Master Beekeeping program.
All participants must be a member of a bee club, any club is fine!
Anyone participating in the hive inspections will need to have their own protective gear and sign a release form before entering the bee yard.
All hive inspections will be during the 1st hour at Isabee’s bee yard. The 2nd hour will be in Isabee’s meeting room going over the topics for that month, other areas of concern. Question and Answer.
