Online events

With the pandemic still raging in certain areas, most things have been pushed to online venues.
This could be a golden opportunity for some of us to attend things that would normally be out of reach. 
Is there anything you all know about that you would like to share with the group?

I have enjoyed watching beekeeping zoom videos put on each week by the Lawrence County Alabama Extension Office.

Texas doesn't seem to have anything so far, but I cross posted the New York one to Metro Beekeepers in DFW.  Will see if any new links pop up there due to the inspiration
