Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
Save the date: Feb. 17, 2024 @ KVCC
Bee School is fast approaching! Have you saved the date in your calendar (use pen!) or arranged your carpool with neighboring beekeepers? Tickets will be on sale soon, so be sure to bookmark this page and follow us on Facebook so you don’t miss out on any details as they’re announced!
Will you bee there?
Free club education continues after the first of the year, but our website offers year-round resources for all of your beekeeping needs. ‘Resources’ tab for supplies, bees and educational offerings.
- December – No club meeting
- Wednesday, January 10: This meeting will be virtually on “Zoom.” Topic: So You Want to Be a Beekeeper.
Learn more about our events on our Club Meetings page.
Meeting location is varying a bit, sorry! Cost is always an issue, as are facility resources. Please watch the newsletter and our other media for WHERE each month we’ll bee hosting the meeting, and we are working toward a quasi-permanent location.
Our speaker honorariums are funded in various ways, such as the vendors who pay for a listing on our site. Please show your appreciation to them when you purchase bee resources.
Too numerous to mention, the KBC is appearing at various local events. We appreciate a community that prioritizes pollinators. If you’d like to be a KBC spokesperson to talk about pollinators, please drop us an email. There are plenty of events in the months ahead and we always need volunteers.
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 form; we’ve found them very responsive and helpful.
They also have many excellent webinars for a variety of issues. Please check them out.
If you’d like to help support our work, we’d greatly appreciate your tax-deductible contribution. THANK YOU.
