Beekeeping: Then and Now

Tuesday November 9, 2021
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM


Flyer for Beekeeping: Then and NowThis program was originally scheduled to be in person at Storrs Library and has been moved to Zoom.

Join Storrs Library with backyard beekeeper and Park Ranger Susan Ashman as she explores the fascinating history of beekeeping. Take a look inside the different hives over time, learn about beekeeping in early New England, and discover what you can do to help these little pollinators out.

Susan Ashman is an Interpretive Park Ranger and the Historic Weapons Supervisor at the Springfield Armory National Historic Site. Originally from Southern California, she joined the Air Force after high school and spent 8 years as an Aircraft Hydraulics Systems Mechanic. She previously worked at Old Sturbridge Village as a costumed interpreter demonstrating 19th century rural New England farm life. Outside of work and beekeeping, Susan is a voracious reader of Civil War and WWII history, and loves historic traveling and battlefields.

This program is cohosted by Storrs Library and Longmeadow Historical Society.
