Tuesday, April 7“The Vanishing Honey Bee” and its current impact, by Howland Blackiston, author of Beekeeping for Dummies – CANCELLED

Howland Blackiston is the author of Beekeeping for Dummies, a best-selling book on beekeeping, and he has been a back yard beekeeper since 1983. Howland has written hundreds of articles on the subject and has appeared on dozens of television shows and radio programs, including The Discovery Channel.

Howland is the past president of Connecticut’s Back Yard Beekeepers Association, one of the nation’s largest regional clubs (the club has nearly 500 members) for the hobbyist beekeeper. His presentation style is fun, lively, humorous, engaging, and full of “betcha didn’t know” facts about honey bees and beekeeping.
