SESSION DETAILS: BEES Network: Learn How to Grow Your Knowledge and Understanding of Bees and Beekeeping

 

Join us as we learn more about an exciting new program – the Beekeeper Education & Engagement System (BEES). Under the direction of Dr. David Tarpy, associate professor and extension apiculturist, Department of Entomology, North Carolina State University, the BEES Network is an online resource for beekeepers at all levels. The system is entirely Internet based and aims to foster an online learning community among beekeepers. The structure of the BEES Network is broken into three ascending levels of complexity (Beginner, Advanced and Ambassador) and three general areas of content (honey bee biology, honey bee management and the honey bee industry). And, through the end of the year, ABF members will be given the opportunity to participate in the program at a 20-percent discount.
