The Linn Benton Beekeepers Association is presenting a free talk that will help people thinking about getting into beekeeping understand what to expect.
The talk will cover how to get started, what equipment is needed and what it will cost, how much time will be required to care for your bees, some of the practical considerations of keeping a box of 60,000 stinging insects in your backyard, and much more. Experienced beekeepers will be on hand to answer questions.
The discussion will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17, at the Corvallis Waldorf School auditorium, 3855 NE Highway 20, Corvallis.
The association holds regular monthly meetings.
