Monthly Meeting

We feature speakers from nature-related professions who present science-based programs on topics important to the Texas Hill Country. Our meetings are interesting and informative – there’s always something to learn.

Our meetings usually occur on fourth Mondays, excluding August and December. A few meetings are members only events, like our class reception and chapter parties.

Regular monthly meetings are held at the UGRA Lecture Hall, 125 North Lehmann Street near downtown Kerrville. Members and guests chat during our social half-hour beginning at 6:15p.m. We announce chapter awards at 6:45 and the speaker begins at 7:00. Check our home page and calendar for speakers and topics.

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.
