Ken Sikora, 25+ years of Beekeeping Experience
Presented in partnership with UW-Extension and N.E.W. Master Gardener Association

man holding up a bee hiveWanted: New Beekeepers! Pollinators are in short supply and you’re needed to support them! Ken Sikora, who has more than 25 years of beekeeping experience, will share what clothing and equipment you need, the costs of beekeeping, where to get bees, determining good location for a hive, what mentoring help is available and more. You’ll also learn the answers to a variety of bee questions including why the drones (male bees) have grandparents, but not a father and how honeybees and human beings are the only two species in which members can tell one another the location of important food sources.

Don’t delay! Register right away as classes may fill quickly. We also value our instructors’ time, so classes may risk being cancelled due to low early enrollment. Thank you!
