July 19th is National Urban Beekeeping Day. We’re excited to host a Facebook Live event to celebrate the occasion tonight at 6 pm EST. Join Dr. Kirsten S. Traynor as she talks about bees and beekeeping in the city. From how to make sure the wind doesn’t carry your colony away to appeasing neighbors when you need to carry bee equipment through a building, we will chat bees in urban cities. This live event isn’t limited to honey bees. Kirsten will be delving into all the wonderful green spaces she has been exploring in Berlin, Germany that are just buzzing with myriad species.
Send questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org or pop them into the chat during the live session. We are so excited to celebrate with you! And to help you thrive in attracting bees to your city, we’ve put together a useful handout.
