The beehives are located near the demonstration cotton field near the back of the park. All are welcome. The practical test for the Certified Beekeeper will be available for anyone who wants to take it. Please remember, to become a Certified Beekeeper, you must be a member of the NCSBA, pass a written test and the practical test.
