BEE School 2021

Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, there will be no face-to-face beginning beekeeper classes offered by KLCB during 2021.

Beekeeping is challenging and multifaceted. While online courses do exist for beginning beekeepers, it is the feeling of the existing Bee School director that computer-based education as the sole means of instruction is not the best manner to teach new beekeepers. The goal of KLCB bee school education has always been to provide a comprehensive beekeeper education program which is multimodal in its approach, offering hands on opportunities, in person instruction and active involvement in the educational process. The breakout sessions during bee school along with powerpoint presentations and in-person presentations with opportunities for question and answer periods provide the essential components of an active and engaging delivery of material. The active element of hands-on experience and exposure to equipment and hive management techniques and interventions is completely missing in online course offerings...however is completely necessary. The additional important component of bee school education is the opportunity for mentoring which cannot be provided via online course offerings.

The goal for 2021 is for KLCB to provide continuing online education to our KLCB members in the absence of face-to-face meetings and hive openings in the spring. The program committee will be working with the Bee School director to offer courses that will assist last year's new beekeepers who did not have the opportunity to complete in-person education as well as augment learning for our more experienced beekeepers. Stay tuned for further information on course offerings.
