Join us for Iowa’s premier beekeeping class! This eight-session series is designed for individuals serious about keeping bees. It will take the participant through the annual cycle of beekeeping from establishing a hive to harvesting and marketing the honey produced. You will gain valuable hands-on experience by working with the hives at Indian Creek Nature Center. All classes are held at the Nature Center and last approximately two hours.

Must register prior to the first class in January of each year, and be in attendance at the first class. Note: for 2016, we are extending registration until Class C is full. Class fills quickly; you can also be added to the wait list for 2017 by clicking the link to the right.

Fee includes classes, informational handouts, and use of the Nature Center’s honey house and extracting equipment.

If you are interested in leasing a hive, please call the Nature Center at 319-362-0664 and ask for Jean Wiedenheft.
