Jen Holt, Oregon State Master Beekeeper Program

April 24, 2023

Are you interested in learning how to become a better beekeeper? Have you experienced problems in the past that you'd like to remedy? Do you want to help others learn about bees? The Oregon Master Beekeeper Program might be for you!

Participating beekeepers can gain experience at three successive levels: Apprentice, Journey, and Master. Each level provides opportunities and support for additional learning, practice in the field, and community service.

There are many ways to participate in the Master Beekeeper Program, and this talk will provide a broad overview the options available and how you can join.

Jen Larsen is the Program Coordinator for several honey bee and native bee programs at Oregon State University, including the Master Beekeeper Program and the Master Melittologist Program. She earned her apprentice beekeeper certificate during the inaugural year of the program, and has now come full circle!
