Learn beekeeping with Dodge

Here’s your chance to start beekeeping with Dodge Nature Center’s staff as your guide. You will work with bees together, from starting a new package in the spring to harvesting honey at summer’s end. You will be provided with a colony of bees and equipment that will be setup on Dodge’s property in Cottage Grove for the season, 8964 70th St. This is for adults only, and registration is required by March 1. Space is limited. This class will meet twice a month on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 7 p.m., from April through October. The first meeting is April 11. Meetings will take place on occasional Saturdays if the need arises. The cost is $650. If you intend to keep your hive with a partner, there is an additional fee of $200 to cover equipment cost. Call 651-455-4531 for more information or visit www.dodgenaturecenter.org.
