The Indiana Beekeepers' Association Fall Conference will be held at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison, Indiana. The conference will be on Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7. We have lined up some great speakers as well as break out session topics.
On Friday night, Tim Tucker, the American Beekeeping Federation President, will be sharing his tips on what he does to keep his bees alive. He'll also be presenting on Saturday in break out sessions.
Our keynote speaker will be Peter Borst. Peter is a regular contributor to the American Bee Journal, writing on topics as diverse as beekeeping technique, the composition and value of pollen for bees, and the history of bee breeding.
We are very fortunate to have William Fielding from the Indiana DOT with us on Saturday. Mr. Fielding heads up the Hoosier Roadside Heritage Program. Here's an opportunity to ask about what is being done to help our pollinators.
