GPMB Virtual Bee Fun Day – June 13th – 14th

You must register for this event to receive the zoom link for the talks.

Register here: https://ssp.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b1tkenSR6N1xVpb

Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, state restrictions have caused many beekeeping fun days and seminars to be cancelled across the mid-west. The Great Plains Master Beekeeping (GPMB) program has decided to put on a Virtual Bee Fun Day. Virtual Bee Fun Day is a free event, with suggested donations to help benefit Beekeeper Associations and the Great Plains Master Beekeeping program. The event will feature multiple speakers, demonstrations, and even a time to meet with your beekeeping association.

IS THERE A COST?
This will be a fundraising event for GPMB and their partnering associations, but it will be offered to the public free of charge. There will be a suggested donation fee of $10 per person with the ability to customize your donation amount.

As you will see the list below, we are covering quite a bit of different topics, all of these are topics we have heard you request as wants for fun days, GPMB talks, UNL Workshops, etc.

If you have not, like the Great Plains Master Beekeeping page on Facebook.  We will be posting updates in the event.

Some of these talks will be recorded and available for later viewing, some of them will not.  That decision is up to the individual lecturer.  Sometimes it is due to emerging research that is not yet published to the scientific community.  We will be posting a schedule of which ones will be available to watch later and which ones you can only watch live.
