Dan Weaver has had to reschedule for next year. We are happy to announce that Lauren Ward of Bee Weaver will be speaking to us about colony management: common mistakes, balancing hive resources, seasonal patterns, and more.
Lauren is a Texas A&M University graduate with a Master’s of Science in Entomology. Her academic background is in Animal Science and Entomology, with entomological emphasis on systematics and biological control. Towards the end of her college career she pursued an ongoing interest in apiculture, which combines her love of insects with livestock husbandry.
After graduation Lauren worked at the TAMU Honey Bee Lab as apiary manager and instructor for the Honey Bee Biology course. Early this year she was happy to accept a position at BeeWeaver Apiaries where she wears many hats…most often with a veil!
In addition to our main presentation, we will have our annual officer elections, a youth scholarship presentation, our “Bee Plant of the Month”, “Bee Book of the Month”, and our monthly “In the Hive”.
The pre-meeting class this month is “So You Think You Want Bees, Part 2” designed to talk aspiring beekeepers through the preparations involved in starting up their beekeeping adventure next Spring. The class starts at 6pm, presented by TVBA president Ryan Giesecke. Class is $10 per family for non-members, $5 per family for TVBA members.
Want to help out at a meeting? We are always looking for folks to bring snacks and give brief talks on bee plants and books. Click here to sign up –> TVBA sign up lists
How to find us: Go in the main entrance at The Point and turn left. The main meeting and Q&A session are held in the large meeting room which is the first room on your left. Pre-meeting presentations are held in the small theater at the end of the same hallway, also on the left side.
Our meetings are always free and open to the public. Feel free to attend even if you don’t know anything about beekeeping–it’s a great chance to meet people and see what it’s all about!
