The event, sponsored by the Central Cariboo Beekeepers

Assn. and the B.C. Honey Producers Assn., will be held at the Dunaway Ranch, Soda Creek this coming Saturday, September 21 at 1 p.m. with a potluck to follow.

Coordinator Diane Dunaway said she expects beekeepers to travel from 100 Mile House and the Prince George area to take in the event.

Dunaway said with the ongoing challenges facing honey bees, it’s critical to educate beekeepers on how we can all do our part to keep our bees healthy and pesticide-free.
