The full schedule is available here: http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/honeybee/extension/Bee College/SFBC/SFBC_esp.pdf with an important addition; David Westervelt Asst. Chief of Apiary for the Florida Dept. Of Ag will be speaking on the new apiary rules regarding zoning, pesticides, bee removal and more.

For the first time we are offering a Spanish-track featuring Dr. Ernesto Guzman Head of the Honey Bee Research Center of U. Guelph Ontario Canada https://www.uoguelph.ca/ses/users/eguzman.

We offer 4 Bee Colleges a year now including Grenada. March is at Whiney Lab, south of St. Augustine. October is in Chipley, West of Tallahassee. There is a distant plan to add a week long bee boot camp. Each coincides with a student break at the University.
