CAPE COD Massachusetts
August 6-10, 2001
EAS 2001 will be held at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy (MMA) in Buzzards Bay, MA the week of August 6-10. The beautiful MMA campus is surrounded on three sides by water and only one-hour driving time from either T.F. Green Airport (PVD) in Providence, RI or Logan International Airport (BOS) in Boston, MA. Cape Cod is a wonderful place to host an EAS Short Course and Conference. Planning is well underway to make it an unforgettable experience for all who attend. Watch for periodic updates to this web site and in the EAS Journal.
The Eastern Apicultural Society of North America was established in 1955 with the purpose of promoting honey bee culture, the education of beekeepers, and excellence in bee research. Every summer, EAS conducts its annual conference in one of its 22 member States/Provinces. About 500 people, from around the world, attend this conference every year.
The conference consists of two parts - a 2 1/2 day beekeeping
course (the "Short Course"), and a 2 1/2 day Conference and Workshops. The Short Course
runs from Monday morning through Noon, Wednesday, and consists of
two different tracks, "Level I" for beginning beekeepers, and "Level II"
for more experienced beekeepers. The main conference starts after lunch
on Wednesday, and runs through Friday evening, and consists of main
symposia as well as smaller workshops. There are also a number of social
events planned, as well as local sight seeing tours on land and sea.
