Heroes to Hives

Heroes to Hives students participate in a 9-month comprehensive education program that couples online lectures with hands-on learning in our Heroes to Hives apiaries located across Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota and Nebraska. Students receive 2-6 hours of lecture content every month from March-November that is pre-recorded, so that they can learn at their own pace. Online instruction is then couple with on-ground training April-October on hive handling, hive inspections, pest and pathogen management, and beekeeping ergonomics. Students who complete the course are eligible to receive a certificate of completion from MSU and can transfer credits to the Great Plains Master Beekeeping Course offered through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
