We are pleased to announch that Dr. Meghan Milbrath will be our featured speaker for our annual spring seminar!

Dr. Meghan Milbrath began working bees with her father as a child over 20 years ago, and now owns and manages The Sand Hill Apiary, a small livestock and queen rearing operation in Munith, Michigan. She studied biology at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, and received degrees in public health from Tulane University and the University of Michigan, where she focused on environmental health sciences and disease transmission risk.  Meghan worked as a postdoctoral research associate under Zachary Huang at Michigan State University, studying nosema disease, and is currently an academic specialist at MSU, where she does honey bee and pollinator research and extension and is the coordinator of the Michigan Pollinator Initiative.   Meghan is active in multiple beekeeping organizations, writes for multiple beekeeping journals, and speaks about bees all over the country.  She currently runs the Northern Bee Network, a directory and resource site dedicated to supporting queen producers, and she is passionate about keeping and promoting healthy bees.

Topics will include: Moving Towards Treatment Free; Swarm Biology; Successful Overwintering; Nucs and Sustainable Beekeeping. We’ve heard Meghan speak before, and one of the wonderful things about her is that she is very understandable and practical.
