This link will take you to the participation sign-up. You can read about the project on their home page. But in essence, they are surveying everyday beekeepers regarding their colony losses and management practices. They will use this data to help evaluate the continuing colony losses experienced in so many locations. I just signed up and it looks like you get an invitation to participate in early April. This will be interesting.
Brushy Mountain also has some useful videos for new beekeepers. You need to have Quicktime to watch them so I can watch them on one computer but not the other 🙂
