Presented by the Southern Tier Beekeepers Association. Bring a drink and snack. Registered participants will receive a CD of the presentations, informative beekeeping documents, and links.

As part of the class there is a "hands-on" session at the STBA club apiary.  This session will give everyone a chance to work a beehive and chat with experienced beekeepers.   This session is "free" with class registration and is limited to class participants.
