In addition, the Kamloops Beekeepers Club will also organize online events this spring and summer to assist aspiring beekeepers in their endeavours.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most in-person beekeeping classes have been suspended, according to Kamloops Beekeepers Club president Bryce Herman, but if you have access to the Internet, there are options to learn how to become a beekeeper this spring.

The Provincial Apiculture Branch is offering a free second session of the online Introductory Beekeeping Webinar Series, beginning March 27.
