About the Event

Spring has sprung, and many of us are noticing more than just pollen floating in the air! With beautiful spring flowers come our buzzing friends, the bees, and it’s important to understand just how special these little pollinators are for our gardens and local ecosystems. Jack Rowe, Alabama Cooperative Extension Regional Agent & Forestry, Wildlife, & Natural Resources Specialist, will give us a closer look at these vital pollinators. His motto is “To keep bees know bees” and that’s exactly what he will help us accomplish with a live webinar from 9 - 11 a.m. on Friday, April 16. We'll cover topics like:

  • Bee Biology & Societies
  • Major Bee Parasites & Diseases
  • Hives & Related Tools
  • Maintaining a Hive
  • Harvesting Honey

This is a free event, but registration is required. Click here to register today! Bee Basics is the April installation of the 2021 Agriculture & Stewardship Seminar Series. This event is presented in partnership by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and the Town of Pike Road's Ag & Stewardship Club, an ENHANCE initiative committee.
