This conference is dedicated to the special challenge of keeping honey bees in Northern climates. One of the goals of this conference on pollinators is to provide a better environment for UP gardeners and to make agricultural/farming efforts in the UP more sustainable. By supporting beekeepers and beekeeping efforts we conserve the local Eco system and improve the well being of local residents.

The conference will have something for everyone. There will be several sections to choose from; The beginner track, the advanced track, pollinator habitat/needs and fun stuff!
