Our generous friends and bee-lovers at Kaktus Brewing Co. are offering Tour guests who visit 4 or more sites a beer tasting for up to 10 of their friends! What a great way to end the tour.
Slow Food ABQ will be providing honey-infused refreshments at Open Space Visitor Center and another location. Please register for the Tour to find out where!
You will also have an opportunity to enter to win a topbar nuc hive, full-sized topbar hives, a bee vacuum and many other great prizes. Review the complete list of raffle items here. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20 and will be sold at several of the sites. See the site descriptions to find where you can purchase raffle tickets. Drawing takes place October 5 at the last 2017 ABQ Beeks meeting. Proceeds support ABQ Beeks, NMBKA and SlowFood ABQ.
This is a CLOSED hive tour (hives will not be opened); however, taking precautions when visiting a bee yard is a good idea. Please wear light colored clothing and avoid heavy fragrances.
