March 2016 Meeting

On March 1st at the monthly meeting we will hear from Daniel Najera about the results from the overwintered electronic hive monitoring. If you remember a few of these monitors were placed throughout Western Washington to see if we could track some helpful statistics to see how we can help the bees through winter. Robert of course will be presenting on basic beekeeping for all the new (and those that want to be new) beekeepers!

Note, that if you have not renewed your membership for 2016 be sure to see Andy Matelich at the meeting. If you need to order package bees or spring nucs be sure to see Charles Schaffer or Mike Skripek.
