Join Bluebird Canyon Farms’ resident beekeeper Connor Dorais for an entertaining and informative introductory beekeeping event. The workshop will include a discussion of honeybee biology, modern beekeeping equipment and techniques, a brief history of beekeeping, and explore current issues affecting honeybees including hive health. At the conclusion of the discussion we will suit up (full protective bee suits) and walk to our Hobo Camp Apiary located on the hillside above the farm. During the workshop participants will be given “hands-on” opportunities to open and inspect our hives and observe what is going on inside the hive body. Our goal will be to spot the queen, drones and workers and see the functioning parts of the hive. After inspecting the hives we will return to the Lodge and enjoy some light refreshment and sample some some different honeys.
