November 13th – Elections & Julia Mahood: Game of Drones (season 2)

November is election time, right?! Well, we need to do our part and vote for our 2024 club officers. Come and cast your vote!

Please note: This meeting is being help one week earlier than normal to accommodate the college’s holiday schedule.

And…It’s time for Season 2 of Julia Mahood’s Game of Drones. Honey bee drones are the Rodney Dangerfields of the bee world, they (often) get no respect! Come and hear about the latest research Julia has been doing and find out more about the amazing drones and their mysterious drone congregation areas (and how to find them using the other kind of drone) at this informative talk by Julia Mahood.

Julia is a Georgia Master Craftsman Beekeeper who has been keeping bees since 2004. She created the citizen science website to gather data on drone congregation areas. Julia was awarded the Georgia Beekeeper of the year in 2018. A graphic artist, she designed the Georgia “Save the Honey Bee” license plate. She is passionate about education and teaches beekeeping in Georgia prisons and is active in her local and state bee organizations.
