This webinar will discuss ways to maintain your beehives in a more sustainable way, minimizing losses through management, using local bee stocks (your own or a local beekeeper), and creating resource hives.

All beekeepers who are interested in learning how incorporate sustainability into their hive management practices can benefit from attending this webinar.
Meet Your Instructor

Mike uses beekeeping and the creation of native pollinator habitat for research and as a way to educate the public on the importance of pollinators.
“As a newcomer, it was good to hear someone explain in more detail and in real time, [rather] than a person on YouTube explaining the subject. Also the live questions helped as well!”
