Most participants come to the Beekeeping Class with an interest bees, their place in our world, and to learn just what is involved in beekeeping. Some are completely new to the hobby while others have been or are current beekeepers wishing to refine and update their knowledge.
The program’s mission is to develop knowledgeable beekeeping ambassadors to help educate and inform the larger community. The welfare of bees and beekeeping is of utmost importance, now more than ever, so the program aims to improve awareness of beekeeping issues in Boulder County, Colorado and beyond.
