Beekeeping with Bill
The Dubuque Audubon Society will sponsor "Beekeeping with Bill" presented by Bill Johnson (Johnson Honey Farm) on Thursday, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. at EB Lyons Interpretive Center.
The Johnsons are very involved in promoting beekeeping in our region. They are active with the American Beekeeping Association and have been on the board of the Iowa Honey Producers Association for 15 years. They teach a six-week beekeeping course at NICC every January and also work with the Iowa Honey Queen.
Bill will speak about his experiences with beekeeping and the current threats to these amazing pollinators. He is an energetic, passionate, knowledgeable speaker. With the decline in honey bee populations and the general threat to pollinators this topic is an important one for our future.
Any and all ages are welcome to attend the free programs sponsored by Dubuque Audubon Society, which are informational and exciting. Also feel free to join us for the Audubon meeting before the program at 5:30pm.
