Join Massachusetts state Beekeeper Ken Warchol for an in-depth lecture on spring management of honey bee hives.

For beekeepers this program will provide critical information and most especially timing of important management techniques to get the honey season off to a positive start. Following this class, participants are welcome to stay to meet and discuss beekeeping with others.
