Beekeeping is one of those interests that many people often think about doing - but too often give up on as they try to figure out how to get started.  Well, a series of free workshops coming up in February just might be the answer to your new path.

The University of Wisconsin-Superior invites folks to sign up for a five-part class called Beekeeping offered over the next few months, starting Saturday, February 8 in Swenson Hall.  At each three hour class, individuals will get the necessary training to raise and care for honey bees.  UWS Apiary Manager and Professor of Biology Dr. Edward Burkett will lead students through all they need to know.

While the classes are free, advance registration is required.  Click here to visit the online page for these classes - available on the UWS website.
