Spring Beekeeping Symposium was held on February 1, 2014

The annual beekeeping symposium was held on February 1, 2014.  The location was the Lowder Business School (now renamed the: Raymond J. Harbert College of Business where the meeting has been historically held. This symposium was well attended and is a cooperative project between the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and the Alabama Beekeepers Association.

Lunch was provided by the Alabama State Beekeepers’ Association for all who pre-registered.  Hope to see you next year.

    1. Kevin, I will be getting the final information out, but the preliminary program will be headed by Dr. Jeff Harris, currently the bee professor at Mississippi State University. I will have a presenter give a lecture on invasive weeds and plants and what beekeepers should know. I will have a speaker on the Alabama Smart Yard Program and I am arranging a streaming video feed from a Tennessee beekeeper on his procedures for marketing honey. Additionally, the ABA Master Beekeeper program will have a partial certification program on Friday, the day before the meeting. Of course, this is only a small part of the program. Thanks for helping announce it.

  1. Do you have a final program ready for distribution? My wife & I would like to plan our day in advance of arriving in Auburn.

    1. Dear Susan, I apologize for such a late response. We too were caught up in the road issues and getting through Birmingham to Auburn, but as you might know, we were successful and the event came off as scheduled. I do hope you were able to make it. Good luck this season with your bees.
