The goal of our extension program is to support California beekeepers and other growers through providing timely and accurate information and continued education. We also cooperate with these groups to conduct relevant applied research and use it to develop practical solutions for issues of statewide importance.
To stay abreast of current issues, our team attends major conferences such as California State Beekeepers Association Convention, American Beekeeping Federation Annual Conference, American Bee Research Conference, The Almond Conference (Almond Board of California). What we learn we then disseminate through speaking engagements at various beekeeper associations and clubs (Click on our NEWS tab for the latest schedule).
We also offer classes and workshops for beekeepers of all levels. In the Spring 2015 we will be offering BEEginner Beekeeping and Queen Rearing Techniques. Stay tuned for the dates!
