Young Harris College and University of Georgia Beekeeping Institute

2021 Virtual Young Harris Beekeeping Institute
Thursday - Saturday, May 13th & 14th.

This marks the 29th year of the Young Harris College / University of Georgia Beekeeping Institute. It’s our goal to bring the best beekeeping educators and scientists in the English-speaking world for our participants. Each year we strive to present an educational event that meets the needs of everyone, whether an experienced beekeeper or new beginner. The result is quite simply one of the best beekeeping educational events in North America. 
Concerning the Master Beekeeper Program in 2021:
Unfortunately, due to the virtual format, we will not be able to offer the Georgia Master Beekeeper and Welsh Honey Judge programs, or the annual Honey Show. Stay tuned for more information about certified testing at local beekeeping clubs and associations. The UGA Bee Lab will offer both the Journeyman and Master level testing at the Georgia Beekeepers Fall Meeting, September 23-25. Details will be on the UGA Bee Lab website shortly concerning those two exams.

Below are our special guest instructors that are scheduled for 2021:

Professor Robin Crewe, University of Pretoria, South Africa
Dr. Kristen Traynor, Arizona State University
Jerry Hayes, Editor of Bee Culture Magazine

2021 Program


Tuition for the institute will be $40. 

Hope to see you online at the 2021 Young Harris/UGA Beekeeping Institute, the best meeting around!
