We receive many calls throughout the year for speakers or helping with an event that aligns with our mission. There are a variety of ways to help! We are always accepting volunteers for the following:
Presenters for 30 – 60 minutes bee basic presentations for child through adult audiences. We are revising all our content to make it easy for our members to have materials, pack up, and share their knowledge.
Content writers for educational materials.
Event assistance for large events – this is one of the easiest ways to volunteer by manning an NCBA booth for two hours! Our most popular event is the three-day Larimer County Fair in August with smaller, one-day, 4-8 hour events throughout the year.
SCHOOL AND CLUB PRESENTATIONS
Please contact outreach coordinator if you need display material or brochures for your programs. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Also please let us know if you do a presentation on behalf of NCBA so it can be put into our outreach files for the future.
We are looking for volunteer members who would supply frames of bees with a queen and honey to be used in our second new Observation Hive. This can be borrowed by members for programs and it is needed for events and the County Fair.
GENTLY USED ITEMS
Call for used hive bottom boards, tops, tools, and veils and kids bee suits/gloves:
Needed for interactive education programs. Please contact outreach coordinator for pick-up or rendezvous at the NCBA Storage Unit in Loveland.
YOU CAN DO THIS!
Anyone can be a presenter in our Volunteer programs. Lisa Boesen has made a great little video to help you. We get many requests from schools to have someone come in and speak about beekeeping, but not enough volunteers to fulfill the need. We hope this video helps you with wanting to be a NCBA volunteer presenter.
Any one who would like to help with these events or get more information, please contact NCBA Program Director – email@example.com
