Next Meeting:  Tue., Sep 3 @ 1:30 PM

Program:  Uncle Jer’s Traveling Bee Show

Jer Johnson, a long time hobbyist bee keeper, helped his parents manage their 10,000 hives as a teenager.  He knows the practical side of bee keeping.  Ellen Johnson, a former administrator, missed out on a career as a biologist  and has done the research for the show’s science portions.  We will have a slide show with some film clips during which we talk about pollination, bee safety, honey and the history of bees.  The last portion of the presentation will include honey tasting and hive viewing.

All are welcome to  join us at our meeting which begins at 1:30 PM at the Amador Senior Center, 229 New York Ranch Road, Jackson.
