Bees & Cannabis in Southern Oregon

May 12 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

On Friday, May 12th at 3:00pm, the Southern Oregon Beekeepers Association invites you to the Southern Oregon Research & Extension Center Auditorium, 569 Hanley Rd. in Central Point, for “Bees & Cannabis: an Educational Symposium.”

The Oregon Department of Agriculture’s Rose Kachadoorian, Pesticide Regulatory Leader, and Mike Odenthal, Lead Pesticide Investigator, will give presentations and host a Q&A.

The symposium will focus on commonly used pesticides, their effects on bees, the pesticide bee-kill investigation process, and much more. We will also have a facilitated question and answer period, where participants identify local issues, brainstorm possible solutions, and develop action items to create positive relationships between cannabis growers, bees, and beekeepers.

Target audience: cannabis growers & beekeepers

Also welcome: farmers & land managers

“Note – Licensed Pesticide Applicators, we have requested two Oregon Core Recertification Credits.”
