What’s the buzz about?
Spring is fast approaching. And what better way to celebrate than by taking a beekeeping class? After all, those intrepid bees are at least partly responsible for the array of colors blooming around town. For those interested in the basics of bee biology, the Sacramento Area Beekeepers Association (SABA) will offer a hands-on beginning-beekeeping class. Entomologist Randy Oliver will lead the class, which runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Those afraid of being stung have little to fear. In fact, SABA member Nancy Stewart doesn’t recall a single soul being stung during any of the beekeeping classes. However, just to be safe, students will be provided with protective gear. The class costs $25 and will be held at the Sacramento County Cooperative Agricultural Extension Auditorium at 4145 Branch Center Road. Call (916) 451-2337 for more information.
