We will have our own David Clark showing us his Spring first inspection technique in pictures.  David has not shared this information since 2019 and it is definitely worth a revisit.

Our keynote speaker is Pam Hepp on “ Spring management coming out from winter”Pam Hegg.  Pam is an EAS Masterbeekeeper.  Pam says ” I am a former high school chemistry teacher, turned beekeeper in 2013.  I had a student taking over hives from her sister and I wanted my tomatoes to produce more, so I got honeybees.  I was hooked immediately.  The bees are fascinating.  I try to help the bees help themselves.

I’ve been active with the Montgomery County Beekeepers Association – as their outreach coordinator, Vice President and President.  I helped develop and have been a teacher of the MCBA online “Short Course” – beginning beekeeping course.”
