      At the suggestion of some of our members we changed the location of the spring meeting. This also meant that we had to change the date. So please get out your calendars and make the needed change—this is a meeting that you won’t want to miss! We tend to gear our spring meeting to focus on some topics for beginning beekeepers with an emphasis on colony management. We have lined up the perfect guest speaker for this meeting!

      Our guest speaker will be Dr. Dewey Caron. He started with honey bees as teenager in Vermont. He later studied fora PhD with Dr Roger Morse of Cornell University. He is also interested in insect natural history and pollination biology. He was a Professor of Entomology and Apiculture (honey bees) for 11 years at the University of Maryland and 29 years at University of Delaware. He conducted research and did extension and teaching with honey bees and insects and wildlife conservation. He retired in 2009 and is now living in Oregon to be close to grandchildren. He is still active with insects and honeybees. He is also an active participant of state, local and regional bee meetings (presenting over 100 talks each year). He is the author of the book, Honey Bee Biology and Beekeeping—many of you may have purchased this from Dr. Larry Connor at our fall meeting—bring it back and have Dewey sign it!
