“Survival of Beekeeping in the 21st Century,” @ Sheridan College
Nov 12 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The next event in the Sheridan College Museum of Discovery’s science lecture series will focus on beekeeping.

Reed will discuss these challenges while highlighting how the food supply depends on the success of beekeepers in a harsh environment.

Tongue River Honey was established in 1918 in Ranchester by a railroad worker who turned to beekeeping, Earl C. Reed.  It has since been passed down three generations. Clifford Reed, who grew up working honey bees with his family, and his wife took over operations in 1984 and are the current owner/operators.  They are members of the Sioux Bee Honey Association, the world’s largest honey co-op, and Clifford has served as past president of the Wyoming Beekeepers Association.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be held at the Sheridan College Science Museum in the Mohns Science Center, located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.

“Vietnam underground” presentation @ Sheridan Junior High School Early Auditorium
Mar 11 @ 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The University of Wyoming World to Wyoming lecture series will feature Mark Jenkins at 7 p.m. March 11 at the Sheridan Junior High School Early Auditorium.

Jenkins, from National Geographic writer and UW, will present “Vietnam underground: The Viet Cong, spelunkers and the biggest cave on earth.”

Hidden deep in the jungles of central Vietnam, on the edge of the Truong Son Mountains, is a network of massive caves. Created by underground rivers cutting their way through limestone, most of these caves remain unexplored. In the past two decades, a highly accomplished team of British spelunkers have been penetrating ever deeper into these gigantic caverns.

Jenkins was invited on an expedition to descend into what would turn out to be the largest cave ever discovered, Hang Son Doong. Exploring this cave was so treacherous and difficult the team actually lived underground for days to complete the first descent.

In his presentation, Jenkins will take the audience across Vietnam — a vibrant country finally thriving after decades of war — and into the dark belly of the earth.

The event is free and open to the public.

For additional information, contact Manuela Hofer-McIntyre at 307-766-3415 or mhoferm1@uwyo.edu.
