SEPTEMBER 2022

Beekeepers of the Bitterroot will be holding our regular monthly meeting on

Monday September 12th 6pm to 8pm at the Mosaic Church at 206 W Main in Hamilton 2 doors west of the Naps Restaurant.

 

Don't forget to bring a non-perishable food donation to thank the church for use of their space. 

Topics that will be covered this month are as follows:
 

There will be 2-3 presenters. 

  1. Michele Dieterich, education director of the Bitterroot Bear Resource Committee

  2. Russ Talmo, Defenders of Wildlife

  3. Bruce Montgomery Bitterroot Bear Specialist, FWP (he is a definite maybe, if there is a bear emergency, that takes precedence)

 Here is the agenda:

  • Basic bear awareness and attractants around the home 15-20 minutes

  • Bees and Electric fencing stories and the cost share programs available 15-20 minutes

  • Grizzlies in the Bitterroot 10-15 minutes

  • Question and answer 5-10 minutes

  • I hope many of the local beekeepers will attend. With grizzlies starting to wander into our area, securing attractants is more important than ever.
