Workshops address those new to bees and the experienced beekeeper.
“We have reached out to find new and inspirational speakers to take everyone to the next level of beekeeping, bring more people into the craft and help others make a business of beekeeping or just be better at keeping bees and helping pollinating insects,” said Wissner.
Registration is at 7:45 a.m. followed by keynote speaker William Meikle of the USDA Agricultural Research Service Carl Hayden Bee Research Center in Tucson, Ariz.
