Who's Been Spied Wearing the TVBC Hat?
Jennifer Berry arrived in Boise in August 2016, and blew our socks off. Whoopee cushions, meeting Lt. Gov. Little, a rousing Pub Swarm thru downtown Boise, a day in the field with the renowned "TVBC HornDawgs," Foothills Learning Center lectures, the Annual TVBC BBQ, a trip to the Saturday Market, followed by a bustling Bug Day at the Botanical Gardens, and a superb Boise State University lesson on "What Would Bees Be, if We Let Bees Be?" and a tour of the Roof Top Bee Yard, all led up to Campfire Tales and a fireside, on-bended knee marriage proposal from Uncle Frank. It don't get any better than this!

Ellen was the featured speaker for the Hobbyist Session at the Red Lion Downtowner, where more than 80 beekeepers listened to her tried and true tips and tricks for successful beekeeping. A few days earlier, Carolyn kicked off the 2016 Oregon State Master Beekeeping Program Apprentice class.
