Workshop Schedule

2016 Spring Conference Workshop Schedule

You will notice that workshops are labeled ‘Onward’ or ‘Upward’. Onward classes are for those with less experience, or less knowledge on this subject. Upward classes are for those who have been keeping bees long enough to be comfortable with the basics and hungry for more in depth information on the subject matter to be covered. You encouraged to move back and forth between the two levels as they appeal to you and fit your needs.
