Doug Harper

President and CEO 

Doug has an infectious passion for beekeeping and science. His interests in beekeeping stem from his time at the University of Utah and his involvement in the development of the University of Utah Beekeepers Association.  A pre-med student-turned beekeeper, Doug decided to use his love of biological sciences to fuel his curiousity in the world of beekeeping and the complex inner workings of our winged friends. Now he wants to bring his knowledge to everyone who would like to help our pollinators too!

 Doug Harper's efforts in promoting bees in the community and within academia have led to grant awards from the UofU, keynote speaking engagements with outside states and universities, and a groundbreaking partnership with the State of Utah Agriculture Department. He is pioneering the use of thermal imaging to manage the health of beehives in the State and at the University in winter months when bees are at high risk.
