Description

Bee Veterans Basic Training

Attend a Basic Training session to experience beekeeping. Honey bees are social insects that have complex behaviors and organization. This workshop will enable you to get a chance to explore the inside of a hive and meet the bees that provide significant pollination services and honey production for the US.

Program Requirements

  • -You are a U.S. Veteran

  • -You are curious about bees and beekeeping

  • -You preregister for any class you plan to attend

  • -You wear light colored pants, socks and shoes to class. You will be provided with protection for your face and arms.

Please note that beekeeping involves using smoke, and a risk of getting stung! Our Veterans Apiary is in close proximity to planes taking off and landing. If you are interested in attending a class but are concerned about any of these items, please contact the Bee Squad before signing up: beesquad@umn.edu.
