Keynote Speaker: Dr. Marla Spivak
2020 will be a Leap into the next Bee School. The Bee School will be held on February 29, at Decatur Central High School, 5251 Kentucky Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana 46221.
Marla Spivak is a MacArthur Fellow and McKnight Distinguished Professor in Entomology at the University of Minnesota. She graduated with a B.A. from Humboldt State University and a Ph.D. from the University of Kansas on the identification and ecology of Africanized and European honey bees in Costa Rica. She is particularly well known for her work, along with Gary Reuter, in breeding lines of honey bees that detect and quickly remove diseased larvae and pupae, which is called hygienic behavior. You may register online or mail in a registration. We do not allow walk-ins nor anyone to just visit vendors.
