Short-Course After-Party

Inspecting a frame

We’re planning on adding a new component to the short-course this year to help enrich the learning experience.  Immediately after the short course is over at 3:00pm, we’ll be heading over to our un-official club apiary (weather permitting) to have a short hands-on apiary session.  The location will be announced at the end of the short course.

A veil is required to attend the apiary session, so be sure to bring one.  While gloves, long sleeves, and long pants are optional, they are also recommended for first-time beekeepers.  If you do not already own a veil, you can order one from here or here or here, but order it asap so it can be here in-time.  If you’re really in a pinch, you can usually find these at your local Walmart.
