2016 Fall Conference in Mountain View, AR

Our ABA Fall Beekeeping Conference will be held November 4-5 this year at the Ozark Folk Center. Our last meeting was a door-buster, and we hope to have as many attend again. Our featured speakers this fall will be two popular honey bee speakers, authors and researchers. Please join us for a weekend in the scenic ozarks with Dr. Larry Connor and Dr. Diana Sammataro. We'll post more details here soon. For now, save the date!
