COBKA Beginners Corner

Just a reminder to all of the newer beekeepers, as well as oldsters, that before each COBKA meeting we will be hold a "Beginners Corner" starting at 5:30.  Club mentors monitor the discussions and we split into groups if the numbers allow. 

This is a time in a small informal group situation for you to ask any questions, share what is going on in your hives, or to prepare for the next season ahead.  Please feel free to join us in a relaxed and open setting.

Hope to See you There!

    COBKA Autumn Event 

    The Native Bees of Central Oregon 

     We're excited to welcome Andony Melathopoulos to discuss the native bees of Central Oregon!

    Registration is required for this free event - space is limited!

    Andony is an Assistant Professor in Pollinator Health Extension in the Department of Horticulture at Oregon State University. OSU’s work around pollinator health comes from mandates passed by the Oregon Legislature. He has four primary responsibilities: (1) training pesticide applicators on how to control pests while minimizing impacts to pollinators, (2) organizing a state-wide native bee survey (the Oregon Bee Atlas), (3) guiding residential beekeepers on how to prevent their honey bees from becoming a nuisance, and (4) hosting a weekly podcast on pollinator health (PolliNation). He also sits on the Steering Committee of the Oregon Bee Project, which coordinates pollinator health work across state agencies.
