How Do We Keep Bees Happily Buzzin’ Away?
June 15 at 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Severn River Association presents its next John Wright Speaker Series on how to keep one of nature’s best pollinators buzzing, swarming and doing their pollinating thing and producing honey?
Speaker: Master Beekeeper Tim McMahon who will explain the joys and pollinating power of bees. He is an Eastern Apicultural Society and Georgia Master Beekeeper with over 15 years of experience and as many as 28 hives going at once — now scaled down to 13 hives. Mr. McMahon is also involved in multiple Native Bee projects here and abroad and is a volunteer at the US Geological Survey Native Bee Lab in Beltsville where he works on native bee projects for the Smithsonian. He always has a butterfly net in the car to catch bees and has a microscope on his desk where he spends hours each day identifying bees.
Note: This will be a virtual version of the John Wright Speaker Series. To attend, please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org and put BEES in the subject box. SRA will send login information on June 15.
