The Business End of Bees, free program on 5/23

Hello Ohio Pollinator Advocate! You’re invited to a free program on May 23rd at Stratford Ecological Center in Delaware (map here), sponsored by Stratford and OSU Entomology. Dave Noble will be teaching “The business end of honey bees, for non-beekeepers,” including the economics of beekeeping, pollination, honey, hive products (propolis, pollen, wax…), bees, queens, etc. Dave will discuss how beekeepers manage hives to produce and profit from these different products. We’ll begin with indoors, then we’ll head out to visit the bees after lunch.

10:15 — gather

10:30 to 3:00 indoors and outdoors with Dave Noble and the bees

No fee to attend. Bring your lunch and dress for the outdoors and the bee yard (light pants and closed-toe shoes recommended, no heavy perfumes or cosmetics). Registration is limited, so register soon (open to Ohio Pollinator Advocates and Volunteer Pollinator Specialists).

Register here so we know you’re coming.
