Cornell University -- August 5-9, 2002
The EAS Short Course traditionally has a "Level I" course for novice beekeepers with minimal experience or little training in bee management. It covers all aspects of the care and management of honey bees as taught by some of the finest beekeeping instructors in the country as well as Master Beekeepers from throughout the East. At the same time a "Level ll" course will target improving the skills of more experienced beekeepers.
Organized by Aaron Morris, this years program will provide the standard EAS program with a unique twist! Here is a quick overview of sessions offered and a brief description of each course for this years program. To print these short course pages download the 4 page .pdf of the Sc directions file on the registration page
The Short Course will offer hands on sessions for a wide range of beekeeping
abilities. For less experienced beekeepers, Right Sizing Your
Operation will offer lessons in building equipment properly,
hints about what combinations of equipment work well together and why.
Ever wonder why there are so many choices in frames? Wooden, plastic,
grooved vs. wedged top bars, grooved/solid/slotted bottom bars? And whats
with foundation? Waxed, wired, crimped wire, plastic, Permadent, Pierco!
It boggles the mind! It wont after you attend the short course.
