Beelining – the craft and science of locating wild honeybees

August 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Beelining is the craft and science of locating wild honeybees. The pursuit is old as humankind and has gained new relevance in a time of the accelerating mortality of managed honeybees. Wild (unmanaged) honeybees on the other hand have evolved as self-sustaining populations and are an essential focus for conservation and research. This hands-on workshop will allow participants to learn and practice all essential tasks of beelining at a location in Sonoma County, CA. We also will provide background info and resources for sourcing all necessary tools. This in-person workshop is limited to 14 people. Info & registration here.
