Master Melittologists are required to share their knowledge of bees with other Oregonians.
Many of the same materials our volunteers use are available to volunteers in other OSU Master certificate programs, educational institutions, government institutions and non-profits. PDFs of our educational material can be freely downloaded and reprinted for education purposes.
We also provide hard copies of our educational materials to people (a) taking an online training module (starting March 1, 2020) and (b) reporting back to us on how the materials were used.
