Beekeeping Courses and other Resources for
Managing Honey Bees in Idaho
Beekeeping can be a most rewarding pursuit. However, to be successful at managing honey bees beekeepers need a good place to find valuable information.
To help our amazing honey bee survive and thrive in today's environment, beekeepers need access to well-founded information. Education is key. Hopefully this site will provide that. In addition to providing information about managing bees, we also provide opportunities to register for several local beekeeping courses.
We will offer two "Beekeeping for Beginners Courses" this year. This short course taught by Master Beekeeper Ward Hicks will teach you how to manage your own honey bees for your own benefit.
Choose a course convenient to you.
