I am at the point in my beekeeping career where I am absolutely aware of what the problem is with honey bee health. I want to discuss the solutions and I have shifted my focus to this phase. One of the reasons I was in Baton Rouge was to deliver a presentation on one of my solutions–“Making the City Pretty–a comprehensive guide to urban forage based upon land use”. It was well received and I am happy to spread the message to any groups that you think might be interested in hearing it–as well as yourselves. It is a rather long talk–75-80 minutes–but contains a tremendous amount of data! Any interested parties can contact me at 970-213-3099 or president@coloradobeekeepers.org and I will be happy to try to work you in to my schedule. | Bee Safe Neighborhood Campaign | Pollination Planet | Diana Sammataro retired yesterday from the USDA-ARS after a lengthy career with the Carl Hayden Research Center in Tucson. | Michael Bush | Dr. Jim Tew | Don Studinski of Honeybee Keep | For Sale page.
