This months speaker will be Dr. Sujaya Rao from OSU speaking on bumble bees.
We unfortunately will not be accepting any new registrations.
We will be having a joint field day with Linn County Beekeepers Association and Linn-Benton Beekeepers Association on Saturday, May 21st from 10:00-2:30 at the OSU Apiary located at the Oak Creek Center for Urban Horticulture. The address is 844 SW 35th St in Corvallis. Please follow the signs for parking across the street from the apiary.
Space is limited because of the number of hives available for inspection, so sign up early to get one of the spaces.
In the morning we will have multiple talks that you can choose from and we will rotate through them. We will then take a short lunch break (lunch boxes available for purchase when you sign up). After the lunch break, we will split into groups and get into the hives at the apiary. You will be led by an experienced beekeeper, who will show you the things you should be looking for while inspecting your hives. Experienced beekeepers attending will be getting into hives that are having issues.
To attend, each person will be required to sign an OSU Waiver and Assumption of Risks Agreement OSU OSBA 2016. Please print it out, sign it and bring it the day of the event.
Things to bring: Veil, jacket or suit, gloves and a lawn chair.
Dan Scollard will start our meeting speaking on yellow jackets and what we can do to help prevent attacks on our hives. He will also speak on the services that he offers collecting yellow jackets and hornets.
We will then have round table with club members talking about what they are doing with their hives & techniques and also answer questions that you may have about your hives.
