It has been 4 years since Diana Sammataro has been in Colorado and it is a pleasure to have her back! Diana will be returning to the Front Range for a series of talks this month. Diana retired from the USDA-ARS after a lengthy career with the Carl Hayden Research Center in Tucson. A curriculum vitae can be found here. Diana’s research focus has been on both mites and fungicides.
She will be speaking at the Plaza Event Center in Longmont on Wednesday, February 19th, from 7-9 pm. She will be speaking to the Northern Colorado Beekeepers Association (NCBA) on Thursday, February 20th from 7-9 pm at the Berthoud Community Center. On Monday, February 24th, she will be in Denver at Denver Urban Homesteading from 7-9 pm. Click here for a guerrilla parking guide to the area.
There will be NO CHARGE to CSBA members for Diana’s visit to Colorado. Thank you to all of the supporting beekeeping associations in the area for your support. If you have any non-members interested in attending, we are suggesting a donation of $5.
She is a co-author of “The Beekeepers’ Handbook” which is used by many a beginning beekeeping class as their text. Signed copies of the book will be available at all the events. Thanks to James Bertini with Denver Urban Homesteading for getting the books ordered.
A downloadable poster is available here.
