U of T B.E.E.S. and Dig In! Campus Agriculture are teaming up once more to invite you to the third installment of our delightful and informative Beekeeping 101 Workshop Series!
We are more than happy to have Brock Harpur, York University PhD candidate and bee enthusiast, to educate us keepers and bee-lovers on the parts of the bee that are becoming increasingly important in the midst of modern agricultural practices - its genes.
The seminar will include a brief introduction to Hymenopteran (bees, wasps, ants, and sawflies) genetics, a survey of the current research investigating the evolution of the honey bee using genetics, and finally a discussion of how citizen-scientists, beekeepers, and researchers are working together to understand more about genetic diversity in Canadian honey bees, and provide new tools to help beekeepers in the future.
Special Note: You do not have to have attended the prior workshops to come to this one ! Club members, non-club members, and wannabee club members are all welcome.
