Explore the World of Master Beekeeping

Are you just starting out and want to explore beekeeping? Our Exploratory course provides an introduction to beekeeping, including knowledge about the roles of bees and beekeepers play in agro-ecosystems, what it takes to become a beekeeper, and how one can keep healthy bees for economic and environmental profit. Exploratory courses are not recommended for those that own honey bees already, but for those that are not sure whether beekeeping is for them or not. The exploratory courses are funded by a grant that provides free education for targeted communities in Nebraska to teach an introductory class. This class is NOT REQUIRED to progress through the master beekeeping program.
