Outreach Opportunities

General notes for event volunteering
  • Volunteers can, but don’t have to stay for the entire event.  Even 1 or 2 hours is extremely helpful. 
  • Don’t let being new to beekeeping stop you from volunteering at events.  You WILL know more than you think you know and will be able to answer most questions. If not, you have backup. 
  • If you are interested in presenting, I highly encourage you to  “shadow” someone to see how they conduct a presentation.  Several of us have very nice slide presentations we will gladly share. 
  • If you want to volunteer, have any questions or concerns, or need to cancel, please contact the Outreach Coordinator.
