Beekeeping Workshop Being Offered Again This Saturday at Audubon
Jamestown, NY – The Audubon Center and Sanctuary had such an overwhelming response to its beekeeping workshop last Saturday that it is being offered again this Saturday morning, January 26.
From 10 a.m. to noon, you can learn the basics of beekeeping – just in time to order your bees for the spring.
Bees need to be ordered in January, so this is the time to learn what you will need to start. In the spring, Audubon will offer a beginning beekeeping series to fill in the details.
The class will describe the equipment you need to begin a beekeeping operation. It will also present an overview of honeybees and the care they require. The program will lead into a beekeeping series this spring that will walk beekeepers through their first year of beekeeping.
Cost of the workshop is $12; $10 for Friends of the Nature Center.
Class size is limited. Call (716) 569-2345 or click here to register and pay online.
Audubon education programs are made possible in part through funding from the Johnson Foundation, the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, the Hultquist Foundation, and the Jessie Smith Darrah Fund.
Located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren, the Audubon Center and Sanctuary has over five miles of beautifully maintained trails on a 600-acre wetland preserve. Its three-story building contains a nature store and a collection of live fish, reptiles, and amphibians. One of the most visited exhibits is Liberty, a non-releasable bald eagle.
