Those interested in beekeeping have a new learning opportunity.  The Center for Rural Affairs and University of Nebraska-Lincoln are partnering to offer Great Plains Master Beekeeping, a regional beekeeper training and certification program.

The program’s purpose is to increase the amount of well-educated beekeepers, to provide new and experienced beekeepers with resources to continue their education, and to help others become advocates for bees.

The Center for Rural Affairs is leading Exploratory Beekeeping classes, with four set for this summer:
  – June 15 in Schuyler,
  – June 22 in Grand Island, and
  – Aug. 28 in Crete.

Sessions in Schuyler, Grand Island, and Crete will be in English and translated into Spanish.

To participate in the program, contact unlbeelab@unl.edu or 402.472.8378, or visit gpmb.unl.edu. For more information or to RSVP to Exploratory Beekeeping classes, visit cfra.org or contact Bailey at 402.367.8989 or kirstinb@cfra.org.
