Beekeeper Education & Engagement System (BEES)

ALL COURSES ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE

Courses will be available again online in July! You can sign up for the ‘Watch List’ on any course and will be automatically notified once they are available

BEES is an online resource for beekeepers at all levels. The system is entirely internet based and open to the public. The structure of the BEES network is broken into three ascending levels of difficulty (Beginner, Advanced, and Ambassador) and three general areas of content (honey bee biology, honey bee management, and the honey bee industry).
