On Wednesday 22 June 2011, Manitoba Beekeepers’ Association together with the Red River Apiarists’ Association hosted interested beekeepersfor an afternoon of food, information, and social time.

Over 60 people met in the Multipurpose Room at the Bruce D Campbell Farm & Food Discovery Centre at Glenlea, Manitoba. As guests approached the Research Station Road, they were welcomed by the large brown sign “Bruce D Campbell Research Station”. After parking, guests went into the Farm & Food Discovery Centre.

BeeMaid began the days’ events with an update session for their members. This was followed by lunch. Then scientists, extension staff and others provided up to date information on current events and activities.

Guests were then invited to visit the U of M Research Apiary site. Attendees heard about the recent Varroa Control Product Screening Trials, and saw first hand, the colonies ready for the treatments.
