Virtual Bee Fun Day

June 13 & 14
Video Link: Will be emailed to you the day prior (after registration)
Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, state restrictions have caused many beekeeping fun days and seminars to be cancelled across the mid-west. The Great Plains Master Beekeeping (GPMB) program, a program created out of demand for beekeeping courses in the mid-west, has decided to put on a Virtual Bee Fun Day. Virtual Bee Fun Day is a free event, with suggested donations to help benefit Beekeeper Associations and the Great Plains Master Beekeeping program. The event will feature multiple speakers, demonstrations, and even a time to meet with your beekeeping association.
