On Sunday, Sept 10th, starting at 3pm,
Strathcona County Beekeepers will be hosting a Beekeeper’s Picnic (the first annual?). Come on out for a fun, educational afternoon. You don’t need to keep bees in the County to join us.
Please bring food to share, a chair for yourself, and a sample of your honey. We’ll be doing moisture content testing on your honey samples, demonstrating monitoring for varroa mites, and discussing fall feeding, winter wrap designs, and fall pest monitoring and reatment options.
Guests will include Dr. Medhat Nasr, Provincial Apiculturist,
and Tracey Smith, beekeeper.
The address: 52277 Range Road 225, which is immediately east of Sherwood Park. One mile east of Highway 21 on Wye Road, go south on Range Road 225 for around one mile. Driveway is on the east side of the road.
