Hap-Bee Hour with NBA, UNL, & ISU
Bring your beekeeping questions and your favorite brew to chat with Megan Vetter (Nebraska Beekeepers Association President), Extension Entomologists Randall Cass (Iowa State University Pollinator Working Group) and Judy Wu-Smart (University of Nebraska – Lincoln Bee Lab).
Why: Ready or not the bees are here! Many of our courses have been limited due to covid concerns, therefore we’re providing some extra opportunities for beekeepers to get some help.
When: Every Second Friday from 5:30pm-6:30pm CST
