The Dyce Laboratory for Honey Bee Studies at Cornell University is offering Master Beekeeper Workshops this spring and summer in Ithaca, New York.

Apprentice Level workshops are an introduction to beekeeping for new and experienced beekeepers seeking a comprehensive refresher course.

Journey Level workshops are to facilitate the transition from hobby beekeeping to commercial beekeeping.



Every summer EAS conducts its Annual Conference consisting of lectures, workshops, vendor displays, short courses for beginning and advanced beekeepers, and annual business meeting in one of its 26 member states or provinces in the eastern U.S. and Canada. Over 400 people generally attend the conference each year.
