Beekeeping 102 (for the true BEE-lievers!)
Friday, August 23, 4pm – 6pm

Growing in popularity for hobbyists and entrepreneurs, beekeeping is very different than bee having, and honeybees are very different than native bees. Learn about the intricacies of honeybee hive maintenance - especially in the mountains. Kurt Jones, CSU Extension Director and Agent in Chaffee County, has completed the Apprentice, Journeyman, and Master Beekeeping program from the University of Montana, and started the statewide Colorado Beekeeper Mentorship Program. Kurt will discuss Hive Health and Overwintering Success, and how those concepts interrelate.
For intermediate and experienced beekeepers. Light refreshments, give-aways, and hand-outs included. RSVP by Wednesday, August 21st.

$10     Tickets

Sept 21

Dakota Blonde Concert

Saturday, September 21, 7pm
Dakota Blonde is one of the most unique acoustic sounds around. Their combination of original tunes and carefully selected covers, along with their endearing stage presence and humor is out of this world! Their musical sound is hard to classify, but best put, they are acoustic folk, part bluegrass, part acoustic rock, part singer/songwriter, and sometimes even Celtic. A unique blend of heart, authenticity and contagious spirit! Their acoustic sound is like no other, with such tightly blended harmonies that you would swear they were born to sing together. We're thrilled to have them return to the Heritage Center!
