The Beekeepers of Indiana will hold its fifteenth Bee School in Indianapolis, Indiana on Saturday February 25, 2017, at Decatur Central High School, 5251 Kentucky Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana 46221. Here are the Directions to the school and hotels. Folder pickup starts at 7:00 a.m. (EST), with the program starting promptly at 8:30 a.m. and concluding at 5:00 p.m.
We are honored to have reached this significant milestone as well as having Susan Cobey as our keynote speaker. Susan has taught the specialized technique of instrumental insemination for more than three decades. This is the first year that Sue has been a keynote speaker in Indiana and we are very excited to have her here. For a tentative agenda, click here.
Lectures, hands-on workshops and discussions will be held for beekeepers with any level of skill, experience or ability. Topics on introductory beekeeping tools and techniques, as well as learning opportunities for the more advanced beekeeper will be available. Along with a great program have a raffle, an auction and a variety of vendor displays and supplies from several of the top vendors such as Blue Sky, Dadant, Mann Lake and others. See list of vendors below.
Online registrations will include an additional transaction fee. Registrations that include a legible email will be sent an email confirmation. Be sure to register early, once we are full, we are full.
We’ve made some changes to the registration for the bee school so please read carefully. We no longer have family registration, each person will need to register. We have a discounted rate for children under 15 accompanied by an adult.
Beginning beekeeping classes are also a new concept at this year’s bee school. Each attendee that registers for the beginning beekeeping classes will receive a wrist band that will need to be worn to give them access to the classes. These classes are for those that have little to no experience in beekeeping.
