Here's your chance to start beekeeping with Dodge Nature Center staff as your guide! Work the bees together from starting a new package in the spring, to harvesting honey at summer's end. Many people find this experience relaxing and inspiring. You will be provided with a colony of bees and equipment that will be setup on Dodge's Shepard Farm property in Cottage Grove for the season. If you have already completed the introduction class, consider Level 2.
