Speaker Title The Frame Game

  We all run into the problem eventually. As a beekeeper, most of us will eventually acquire equipment that will cause problems when working in the bee yard. This talk will cover the nuances of hive equipment design that will lead to challenges and uncover the details that will trip you up. Strategies to avoid difficulties will be discussed and along the way some ideas to solve problems that already exist because of the equipment you still want to use. In the end we will hope to teach you how not to lose at the frame game.

Speaker Title The Greatest Generation: Protecting Our Winter Bees

  In the summer, a honey bee colony is like a flowing river - new bees move in, and old bees die off. The colony grows as individuals change over. During winter, however, this flow of bees stops. A single generation is responsible for getting the colony through the most difficult season. These bees store food, create their own heat, and raise the first generations of spring bees to start the cycle again. We will talk about the winter bee - why are they special, why they struggle, and how we can help this extra important generation

Speaker Title Exhibit to Experience – Discovery Place Nature’s Honey Bee Program

  Discovery Place Nature is a small museum in Charlotte that focuses on interpreting the flora and fauna of the Carolinas. A few years ago, an opportunity was presented to the director to bring awareness about the role of honeybees in our environment. Join Discovery Place Nature Director Marvin Bouknight to learn how the museum took the idea of an observation hive exhibit and turned it into a thriving experience for our visitors that goes beyond just an exhibit element. Learn how the collaborative efforts of the museum, a couple of college scholars, a bee-centric business, and members of a passionate local beekeepers club exceeded expectations and is paving the way for some bold ideas for the future of Discovery Place Nature’s bee program!
