This "bee" the place to register!
Learn beekeeping hands-on with experts from Ann Arbor Backyard Beekeepers Club (A2B2).
We offer two fee-based courses, for beginning and intermediate beekeepers. Class fee is $155 per person. Classes meet February through October.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, classes will be held in an online format via Zoom until we can meet in-person safely. Classes will take place twice monthly and may also include extra sessions featuring guest speakers (to be determined). Scheduled dates will vary between weekends and weekday evenings. Recordings will be made available when possible.
Any face-to-face events (e.g., lectures, equipment build day, hands-on bee yard experiences) will be held only if they can adhere to the current CDC guidelines at that time. Further details and class dates will be provided to registered students prior to the first bee school session.
