Meeting Updates

Thanks to all the members and guests who joined us for the CDBA virtual meeting on Saturday, September 18th. Michael Scott, the Renaissance Beekeeper, gave an interesting presentation about his apiary operations using sustainable beekeeping practices! Four lucky participants won some sweet bee-related giveaway items!
