Join the Santa Cruz Bee Company for a one day workshop on all things drone!

Whether you’re a hobby beekeeper or a queen breeder, educating yourself about the importance of having a healthy drone population in your apiary will enhance your beekeeping practice.

This workshop will include lectures and hands-on activities, including:

  • In depth learning about the biology and behavior of honey bee drones with Julia Mahood, Map My DCA
  • Semen extraction education and demonstration by Melanie Kirby, Zia Queen Bees
  • Afternoon demonstration of using a UAV to find drone congregation areas

Flying a UAV is weather dependent, so we can not guarantee the outdoor portion of the workshop.

Workshop Tickets  $75*

*Scholarships are available
