Joby, I am not aware of any classes in your area. There is one on the U of I campus each February. May I suggest you contact: -google central illinois beekeepers association and you might email them to see if there are area classes -contact Pollinatarium coordinator Lesley Deem at 217-333-2910 or firstname.lastname@example.org -contact Jennifer Fishburn, hort educator at the Sangamon-Menard unit. She may know of some area classes. Phone is 782-4617.
Good Luck, Steve
