Description of the Event: 

The first of its kind! A conference dedicated to the special challenges of keeping bees in Northern climates. We are happy to offer to our fellow beekeepers this educationally packed day that includes practical beekeeping information from our keynote speaker, Charlotte Hubbard. There will be many educational and informative breakout sessions. The conference will have something for everyone not just the beekeeper in mind. We have sessions on native pollinator habitats along with sessions geared towards beginners and seasoned beekeepers. There are four tracks to mix and match from; the beginner track, the advanced track, pollinator habitat/needs, and fun stuff! (candle, bees wax art, lotions, mead making, etc.) Vendors will be on site to meet all the beekeeping equipment needs of our attendees. Catering will be provided by Simply Superior, Northern Michigan University.
