Rocklin, CA--The Sierra College Natural History Museum will present an illustrated lecture entitled "The Current State of the Honey Bee" by local bee biologist Randy Oliver on Friday, October 18, at 7:30 PM in Sewell Hall (room 111) on the Sierra College-Rocklin Campus.

 Join us for an informative evening to learn about the current state of our honey bee populations - what is affecting colony health and productivity? Randy Oliver owns and operates a small commercial beekeeping enterprise in the foothills of Grass Valley in Northern California. He and his two sons manage about 1000 colonies for migratory pollination, and produce queens, nucs, and honey.  He has over 40 years of practical beekeeping experience, plus holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Biological Sciences.  Randy researches, analyzes, and digests beekeeping information from all over the world in order to not only broaden his own depth of understanding and knowledge, but to develop practical solutions to many of today's beekeeping problems. Having kept bees for most of his life, Randy views beekeeping through the eyes of a biologist, researcher, and nature lover.  He makes his living as a commercial beekeeper, and also maintains a website, www.ScientificBeekeeping.com, through which he shares information about bee biology, colony health issues, and practical beekeeping management.

This presentation is part of the Sierra College Natural History Museum's 2013-2014 lecture series, and will be held on Friday, October 18 at 7:30 pm in Sewell Hall, room 111. Tickets are available at the door. Prices are General $5 / Students and Seniors $2 / Museum members free. All proceeds benefit the Sierra College Natural History Museum.
