Heroes to Hives

2023 Online Program

The online portion of the Heroes to Hives program moved from Michigan State University to Michigan Food & Farming Systems (MIFFS). Veterans, Reservists, Active Duty or National Guard members of the U.S. Armed Forces are eligible for the program, and they are allowed to enroll their adult children, spouses, partners and caregivers. Registration is open at www.HeroesToHives.com from November 1, 2022, through February 28, 2023.

MIFFS will email eligible participants educational content monthly from March 2023 through November 2023. The 2023 online program will include new videos and resources, and past Heroes to Hives participants are welcome to register.

MSU Extension creates educational materials for participants in the Heroes to Hives program and holds in-hive workshops. Participants in the 2023 Heroes to Hives online program who reside in Michigan will be notified by email about opportunities to register for in-hive workshops at MSU sites in the 2023 beekeeping season.
