Urban Beekeeping:Making and Keeping Good Neighbors

Joran Viers lives in Albuquerque, NM. He is a native of that city, but spent his childhood and early adult years in many other places. Joran has an abiding interest in the natural sciences and ecology, and has worked as a Horticulture Agent for the New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service for the last decade. During this time he took up beekeeping on a small, backyard scale. Joran has recently taken a new job, as City Forester for the City of Albuquerque. Though not an expert beekeeper, he does receive high marks for his presentations, which combine good information, logically presented, with an engaging presentation style.


Join Joran Viers for “Urban Beekeeping: Making and Keeping Good Neighbors”, that was developed for the 2013 Western Apiculture Society meeting in Santa Fe, NM, and it focuses on the things beginning urban beekeepers should know and think about.


The sessions will be conducted via the GoToWebinar online meetings platform, which means the presenter will have a visual presentation, as well as an audio presentation. Upon entering the session online, you may choose whether to listen to the presentation through your computer’s speakers or through your phone.
