Another Great Conference in Mountain View

We gathered for the 2016 Fall Conference at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View again. Our special guests this year included Dr. Larry Connor and Dr. Diana Sammataro among others. We all enjoyed their presentations, full of knowledge and good humor. We also welcomed some new officers and bid farewell to Linda Rhein, who served as our secretary and treasurer for many year. Thanks Linda!

Congratulations to our 2016 Honey Contest Winners!

Beekeeping Classes

The UA Cooperative Extension Service offers beekeeping short courses around the state. These free classes can be a great way for new beekeepers to become familiar with the basics, or as a refresher course for experienced beekeepers. Check the current schedule of upcoming classes to locate one near you. If there are no classes scheduled nearby, visit with your local County Extension office and let them know of your interest.
