Dr. Tammy Horn of the Eastern Kentucky Environmental Research Institute will be leading a fall beekeeping management class at EKU's Meadowbrook classroom building on Oct. 17 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. We will talk about feeding, varroa mite treatments and other end-of-the-season tips to prepare the bees for winter.

If the weather is pretty, we will go to the hives. If you have a veil, please bring one, but there will be veils, suits and gloves at the bee yard. The workshop will end promptly at 10:30 a.m. so folks can attend EKU Homecoming Parade. Please call the Extension Center at 623-4072 to pre-register by Oct. 13.

Dr. Horn is a researcher at Eastern Kentucky Environmental Research Institute and director of Coal Country Beeworks and works with coal companies in Perry and Leslie Counties to reclaim surface mines with pollinator-friendly plants for a continuous bloom. She also is the author of “Bees in America: How the Honey Bee Shaped a Nation” and continues to write for bee magazines, botanical journals and manuscripts. Dr. Horn also is interested in purchasing some field/feed scales for the Coal Country Beeworks project if in good condition.

Educational programs of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
