COARC Saturday in the Apiary

Saturday in the Apiary” is back! If outside temperature allows, we will inspect the colonies and check if they are queenright. Even if it a cold day we can check for colony strength and make sure that the bees have enough feed - the biggest concern this time of year. We will perform “postmortems” on colonies, which did not survive the winter.

Apprentices in the Oregon Master Beekeeping Program can earn education points.

RSVP required. Please email Heike Williams at for details and notification of possible changes. This event is weather dependent. Remember to bring your hat/veil/gloves. Looking forward to seeing you!

 “Saturday in the Apiary” is a casual, loosely structured event intended to provide a learning experience in a relaxed setting. We perform hive inspections, discuss colony management strategies for the month, and implement them.  Everyone who is comfortable being around live honey bees is welcome. You would need to bring your own gear. This is a free event.
