This is a very popular topic and we want to give as many people as we can an opportunity to participate. We will limit each person to one session unless we do not fill up all of the sessions. There is no extra charge for the microscopy sessions.

**NOTE: Parking space is very limited at Brushy Mountain. A $20.00 donation is requested for cars with fewer than 3 people; fee will be waived in cases of hardship. All parking funds will be split between the EAS Honey Bee Research Fund and the EAS Speaker and Education Fund. Why not make some new friends and carpool to Brushy Mountain?
