One of our Board members owns a 10 acre conservation easement property at the corner of W Renwick Road and County Line Road near Plainfield. Located on the property are 5 Langstroth hives and a AZ (Slovenian) Bee house with 2 active families. Join us to learn about AZ bee keeping, and with respect to the American hives: A general hive inspection, mite testing and treating, what to look for in an over wintered hive vs a new hive, a walk around a restored prairie and general camaraderie.
