Want to know what you should be looking for as plants in your bee garden? What is blooming right now? How do you harvest the honey that the bees have made? Then come for the June 2nd meeting where Robert and Kate will be discussing the northwest pollen and nectar sources and we’ll have a demo of an extraction.
Also a reminder that Charles Schaffer and Bob Combs will be giving a hands on Apiary lesson at 6pm, weather permitting.

|8:00 – 9:00||Pacific Northwest Nectar and Pollen Sources by eRobert Clark and Kate
One of the neat benefits of keeping honeybees locally is how much more observant one becomes because of all the native and introduced flowers and blossoms that exist around us – the Pacific Northwest is an enviable beekeeping environment.
Meetings are 7:00-9:00 pm on the first Tuesday of each month at Meadowbrook Interpretive Center (directions to Meadowbrook) and are open to the public.
