Cattle Track Talks

Join us in the CattleTrack Gallery for a stimulating hour with creative and innovative members of our community. Presenters/performers will share their expertise and engage in lively conversation with the audience.

Tuesday, April 11th, 2023 7:00pm – 8:00pm
CattleTrack Talks will feature Cricket Aldridge

Join Cricket Aldridge, beekeeper, and founder of the
Arizona Backyard Beekeepers and the Arizona Honeybee Festival. Cricket absolutely loves helping bees and those who keep them. From relocating Africanized hives and re-queening them, to assisting beekeepers to maintain their own hives, Cricket’s goal is to make beekeeping seem as doable as it truly is. Hang around me long enough, and you’ll be a beekeeper too.

The Importance of Urban Honeybees and Beekeeping

Learn about honeybee biology and behavior in the wild and in managed hives. We will discuss the importance of honeybees and why they are facing challenges throughout the world as well as specifically in Arizona. On a high note, you’ll leave with a better understanding of how you can help honeybees in your neighborhood.
