    Title: Sharing Your Beekeeping Knowledge
    Beekeepers are often asked to share their knowledge at public events or with school and civic groups. Journeyman (or higher) candidates must also document pubic service credits that may involve special presentations. How does one make presentations fun and interactive, while still providing accurate and pertinent information? See  "hands-on" activities demonstrated using interactive dialogue to keep audiences of all ages engaged and interested.
