South Florida Bee College 2014
Friday, August 15, 2014 at 8:00 AM - Saturday, August 16, 2014 at 5:00 PM (EDT)
Fort Lauderdale, FL
The most extensive educational honey bee event in the state of Florida has expanded to South Florida! Members of the University of Florida’s Honey Bee Research and Extension Laboratory are pleased to announce the 2nd annual South Florida Bee College. SFBC will be held at UF’s Fort Lauderdale Research and Extension Center (FLREC) in Davie, Florida.
The two-day event offers classes for beekeepers of all ages and experience levels, gardeners, naturalists, county agents, and anyone else interested in honey bees. You do not have to keep bees to attend; the only prerequisite is your interest in the subject! Even if you have attended the UF Bee College before, we are sure that you will find that the SFBC will be just as fulfilling. The course lineup has topics to suit your practical needs as well as satisfy your growing curiosity on a diversity of honey bee related subjects. We have a suggested beginner track lineup (in orange on the schedule) for novices, though students at the SFBC may attend any course regardless of expertise.
Included in the registration fee on both days are a goody bag iwith promo items, a gold lapel pin, snacks, catered lunches, a catered banquet dinner on Friday evening, and the ice cream social following the awards ceremony. During the ceremony, we announce the award winners for the South Florida Bee College Honey Show, as well as give out door prizes.
Our team of experts and dedicated staff are excited to host the 2nd annual South Florida Bee College. We look forward to seeing you there!
