The Indiana Beekeepers' Association Fall Conference was held at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison, Indiana where the voting members overwhelmingly voted to merge the two organizations.
On Friday night, Tim Tucker, the American Beekeeping Federation President, shared his tips on what he does to keep his bees alive with a question and answer session. Following Tim's presentation was a chaotic but fun 'Bingo' that was open to all.
Our keynote speaker was 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.
