Our first speaker on March 2 is Loni Ronnebaum of Fungi Perfecti. She will discuss “how fungi can help give bees a chance.” Fungi Perfecti has teamed up with Washington State University to study the effects of fungal extracts on bees. Together our efforts have raised over $5 million towards this important cause! She will discuss their research, future plans and what, as individuals, we can do to give bees a chance.
Then we will hear from Ellen Miller of the Washington State Beekeepers Association, who will talk about their Apprentice and Journeyman beekeeping programs. If you haven’t taken the Apprentice class, it is very worthwhile and will improve your beekeeping knowledge. If you already have your Apprentice certification, the SnoKing Beekeepers Association is forming a study group for the Journeyman program, starting on March 22.
