This paid class is taught by BeeManiacs staff. Cost is $50 per person enrolled. Students that are 17 or younger will only pay 50% of class fees (minors have to be accompanied by a paying adult).
This is a classroom setup and we will not work with live bees during this class. There is no age limit for this class but only people enrolled can attend.
Students that join this class will have priority and free access to shorter courses (regular fee is $5 per course) and to hands-on field days through the beekeeping season. BeeManiacs also offers free online education modules and free support through our forum system.
The class starts at 9:00 am and we will stop for a break at 11:00 am (snacks provided) and then continue until 1:00 pm.
