Spring is right around the corner and it’s time to mark your calendars for upcoming HABA events!
The board has been working hard to establish the schedule for 2014 and will be sharing more details as they are confirmed. Their goal is to offer a broad range of topics that will benefit both new and experienced beekeepers and extend the opportunity to exchange ideas and inquiries with other club members.
