Toni Burnham, urban beekeeper in Washington, DC, will present "Urban/Suburban Beekeeping - the Human Side" providing tips for keeping bees and developing a responsible beekeeping ordinance in an urban/suburban environment.

Dr. Wyatt Mangum, researcher and author will present "Hot Bees!  Thermal Cameras in the Apiary" with information on the behavior of winter honey bee clusters as revealed by thermal imaging.

Richmond beekeeper, Theo Hartmann, will introduce the BroodMinder system which wirelessly records hive weight, humidity and temperature (both inside and outside) for remote hive monitoring.
