This beginning bee course will provide basic information about honey bee biology, the equipment used in beekeeping, colony management, honey bee pests, harvesting honey and other essential details for a rewarding experience with these fascinating insects. No prior experience is required for this course. We will provide extensive reference materials. The course will be conducted in a classroom setting; however, we will do plenty of “hands-on” work with bee equipment and offer an optional field trip to an apiary in the spring.
This Conference will highlight green building, sustainability, and energy sessions focused on real progress and real solutions to environmental concerns that our schools, students, teachers and administrators face every day.
Nearly 3 million children in the US under the age of 5 spend time in a child care facility. While all states require child care facilities to be licensed, most do not require a property history, environmental site assessment, or environmental audit before obtaining a license. Many states do not even require that child care facilities test for asbestos, radon, lead paint or chemicals in their well water. Connecticut and Pennsylvania have initiated innovative programs to ensure safe siting of child care facilities in their states. This ATSDR-hosted webinar will explore these state programs and will share ideas to help other states implement safe daycare siting programs.
Second Wednesday of each month 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EST/EDT
