We will deliver the usual excellent speakers and variety from the very practical beekeeping to the more scientific bee talks. The short course will have a beginner, an intermediate and more advanced beekeeping tracks. Conference mornings will feature our award winners and keynoters of note and the afternoon will feature several options for workshops. We will have an auction night event on Thursday and our banquet on Friday night on-site. Tours will include some of the outstanding DuPont property mansions and gardens of the area. Or stroll over to the beeyard for a look at our local colonies.
