Come and listen to Charles explain what to do while the bees are getting out of their cluster and maybe even starting on the maples.
7:30-8:30 Mad Honey Presentation by Debra Langley-Boyer
What is an AZ Slovenian Hive?  Basically, it is a bee hive that opens like a cupboard from the back.  It is usually inside a bee house where you work. The bees come and go from outside.  Europe has been using this style of hive for over a hundred years.  More people are using the AZ hive in the USA.  It is great for all our rain and not lifting.
8:30-9:00 Tea Time/Closing

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.
