All About Bees Seminar
April 30, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Linda Thompson has been a keeper of honeybees since she took the Bowie-Upper Marlboro Beekeepers Association (BUMBA) Introduction to Beekeeping class and got her first 2 bee packages in the spring of 2008. She was the BUMBA Outreach Coordinator for the past five years and is the Prince George’s County Vice President of the Maryland State Beekeepers Association (MSBA).
She has had as many as 9 hives in their back yard in Glenn Dale, Maryland and had 7 last summer. Come to her presentation, All About Bees, to learn about why pollinators in general, and honey bees in particular, are critical to our food supply. Learn about the life cycle of honeybees, how and why they make honey, why they are having a hard time surviving, and what you can do to help. They really are amazing fuzzy little creatures.
