“So You Think You Want Bees” is a Winter class presented by Trinity Valley Beekeepers Association designed to prepare a prospective urban beekeeper for their first Spring. This class covers reasons to want to keep bees, concerns and considerations, time/space/monetary investment, working with neighbors, local and state regulations, what you will need to get started, selecting a hive style and other equipment, how to obtain your bees, recommended reading materials, and more. Whether you’re already getting prepared for Spring or still trying to decide whether beekeeping is for you, this class will give you all the information you need to make informed choices that will help your first year of beekeeping to be …a success.
This is the same course that was presented in two parts before the October and November Trinity Valley meetings, now presented as a all-in-one Saturday morning session at the Coppell Biodiversity Center. The class will cost $10 per family at the door, with proceeds going to help support the Trinity Valley Beekeepers Association Youth Scholarship Beekeeping Program for 2017.
Nestled on 66 acres of nature preserve in Wagon Wheel Park, the Biodiversity Education Center at Coppell Nature Park promotes and provides hands-on environmental education.
