Bees and Beekeeping in New Jersey

If you are concerned about the state of bees in New Jersey and the United States in general, come to Bernardsville Public Library on Tuesday, June 22 at 7:00 pm to watch a short film on beekeeping and hear long-time beekeeper Bob Hughes talk about the problems facing the industry as a whole.

Mr. Hughes has been keeping bees for about 30 years and maintained about 250 colonies at the peak of his beekeeping. He has held the position of president of the New Jersey Beekeepers Association and also president of the Central Jersey Beekeepers Association. For about 20 years, he has worked as a part-time bee inspector for the New Jersey Department of Agriculture. There will be a question and answer period after his talk.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at and follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
