We will be hosting two of the nation's top apiary scientists together this March!  Our goal is to give beekeepers a better understanding of what goes on in the depths of a honeybee colony so we can better manage those colonies and be able to respond to the environmental challenges we face.  Dr. Tom Seeley and Dr. Dennis vanEnglesdorp will present us with a full day of in-depth research knowledge, giving us the tools to better manage our bees.  WCBA members are encouraged to attend this free conference and we invite members from other organizations to attend.  There is plenty of room available in the auditorium for all who are interested, as well as plenty of parking.

This event is FREE to members; non-members may pay $10 to attend or may join the WCBA for $15.

Lunch will be available in the cafeteria for $10 but your payment must be received by February 28 (see form here).
