Location: Michigan Beekeepers’ Association Spring Conference Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center

9 a.m. ‒ noon

The Michigan Beekeepers’ Association (MBA) celebrates its150th anniversary with a special spring conference. The MBA is the oldest continuously operating bee association in the United States and possibly the oldest continually operating agricultural association in the U.S. Quite an achievement!

Why are bees important to us? What is local honey? How can I become a beekeeper? What do I need to get started? Are there any beekeepers near me? Find out the answers to these and many more questions at the Michigan Beekeeper’s Association Spring Conference. If you’d like to talk to a beekeeper, become a beekeeper or just find out about honeybees, this is the place to get started.

This year we have two keynote speakers: Mr. Michael Bush, a well-known beekeeper who is a leader in the natural beekeeping movement and Dr. Roger Hoopingarner, who has been conducting research into the history of the MBA.

Beekeeping supply vendors will be on hand, and breakout sessions will cover the many aspects of beekeeping.

The public is welcome. Register online or at the door. For further information, please contact us at www.michiganbees.org.

Beekeeping is fun for everyone, both young and old.
