Register for Fall Course # 28874 Chesterfield County Parks & Recreation Fall Program Guide

Introduction to Bee Keeping – Join the Rockwood Backyard Bee Keepers Association for a fascinating foray into the world of beekeeping. Beekeeping is an exciting and interesting hobby with delicious results. If you’re thinking about starting a bee hive or are just curious about what’s involved with keeping bees, then this is a great introductory program for you. This workshop is designed for absolute beginners so no prerequisite knowledge is required. The program instructors will teach you how the honey bee lives, discuss different hive designs, seasonal hive management, pests and diseases, and tell you how to get started with your own hive. The class will be held at the Rockwood Nature Center. Class size is limited to 20 people so register early to ensure your spot. The program cost includes all educational materials. The cost for the two days of instruction is $150/person, or $180/per couple (family member, friend, child, etc.).

  1. I just tried to register for this and it does not show up on the registration page. Nothing shows up past September dates for the Nature Center activities. How can I register for the Intro to bee keeping Fall Course # 28874 ASAP?


    • Hi Kimberly, the Chesterfield County Parks & Rec still only has the summer guide available. Their fall guide should be available towards the end of August or early September – once they post/publish that, then you will be able to register. We wanted to give the community a heads-up since the class and registration are so close together. I’ll make an announcement on here when the county has registration available.
