CFANS Dean's Circle Spring Forum

Tuesday, May 14, 6–8 p.m.

The Dean's Circle Spring Forum is an exclusive in-person event designed to express our gratitude to our Dean's Circle members for the difference they make at CFANS—and thank them for all they make possible through their loyalty and generosity.

This forum will feature a presentation from Dr. Marla Spivak. Marla Spivak is a world-renowned honey bee scientist and professor, whose research has focused on social immunity, behaviors, breeding, and beekeeping on large and small scales. Her current research includes the development of “bee lawns”—pollinator habitat in urban landscapes; the health of commercial honey bee colonies and the evaluation of queens' breeders efforts to select stocks for resistance to diseases and mite pests; novel methods to control Varroa mites in honey bee colonies; and surveys of native bees in Minnesota.

Exclusive to Dean's Circle Members. Register by May 6.
