Don’t miss a ‘Day in the CAMBP’ with the California Master Beekeeper Program on Wednesday November 16, from 10am – 4pm! CSBA convention attendees can experience how our members engage in public science-based education and outreach at their local bee clubs, county fairs, schools, 4H clubs and communities to raise awareness of potentially disastrous consequences like increased pest and pathogen transfer, poor nutrition, pesticides, and the public safety risks of overly defensive bees.
Join us for a fun and interactive day that will include dissecting bees, Nosema, EFB and AFB ID, SHB mitigation and managing for Varroa, and listen to our honey bee playlist on Spotify at our kids craft table. There is something for everyone and the CAMBP is proud to support beekeepers across the state and the nation through its comprehensive science-based beekeeping and honey bee health education and outreach programming.
