Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
Most of us at the club level name our hives and / or our queens, and lovingly check on our bees (perhaps too much). How does that contrast to commercial beekeepers, who manage bees for the “move two million colonies to California for almond pollination” event?
Find out how, at November’s online club meeting, November 11 at 7:30 p.m. To ensure you receive access information, please bee sure you’re on our email list. We send access information out via email.
In-person club meetings and Apiary Days are paused until further notice. BUT — we’re busy planning our 2021 Bee School. It will be an online offering, February 20, 2021. Details to come. If you’re signed up for our newsletter, you’ll receive updates there, as well as here.
We continue to try and answer questions as received, but there’s another great resource–the experts at Michigan State University! You can ask questions via this easy-to-use forum; we’ve found them very responsive and helpful.
They also have many excellent webinars for a variety of issues. Please check them out.
The work of the Kalamazoo Bee Club continues even in these pandemic times–managing the bees at our two teaching apiaries, answering questions, and connecting swarms with people who will give them a good home.
If you’d like to help support our work, we’d greatly appreciate your tax-deductible contribution. Contact us through this site to find out how we’re accepting donations. THANK YOU.
