On June 17, 2017 at the University of Maryland/College Park, MSBA will convene its 109th Annual Summer Meeting! Our meeting keynote will be Dr. Jay Evans of the USDA/ARS Beltsville Bee Lab and, recently, of BeeCulture Magazine! THis has been a unique season, with unusual wintering conditions leading to a shift up in the nectar flow for many of us: at this meeting, we will also have a chance to compare notes and consider management techniques for what may be an awful lot of a good thing. Please visit again soon for the meeting agenda!
Maryland State Beekeepers Association Meetings are free and open to the public. No reservations are required. We will be meeting in the Biosciences Research Building at UMD/College Park. Doors open at 8:00 AM, our program begins at 9:00 AM, and we conclude by 4:00 PM.
