Next Monthly Meeting is Monday, 25 November
Rick Fink gives a timely talk about Bee Pollinators: An Overview of Honeybees and Native Bees
Rick will discuss information about both and why they are important in the environment.
Rick is president of Alamo Area Beekeepers Association and member of Texas Beekeepers Association. He is a full-time beekeeper performing live bee removal and relocations as well managing hives for honey production and pollination. Equipped with a degree in biology from Texas A&M University he began beekeeping as a hobby 18 years ago. Many new beekeepers, both youth and adults, have benefitted from Rick’s instruction and thrived with his mentorship.
Come prepared to purchase a jar of Rick’s local honey after the talk.

Reporting volunteer hours:
If it’s not on the approved projects list or on the VMS drop-down…
If a volunteer activity is not specifically listed by name it is most likely not an approved project. Please do not arbitrarily enter hours for an unapproved project under any code. This causes us to be flagged during state audits and creates many steps of extra work for your VMS team. Contact us before volunteering to determine if an unlisted project qualifies for reportable hours. Questions? Email the VMS projects manager or VMS data manager.
