Jackson County 4-H is offering an introduction to beekeeping program Saturday April 29th from 1-3pm at the Jackson County UW-Extension Building. This program is open to all youth in middle and high school. There is no cost for the event. Youth will learn from an area beekeeper about what a beekeeper’s job is during the season, get hands on time with beekeeping equipment and learn about the importance of bees in agriculture. There will not be any actual bees at the introductory event, but if enough youth are interested we will be forming a beekeeping club and they could go out to actual hives in the future.
