The Kalamazoo Bee Club was established in 2008 for the purposes of educating people who want to keep bees, supporting beekeepers, and providing bee-related services to the community (local honey for sale, presentations for service organizations, schools, etc.) The Kalamazoo Bee Club is an open club—anyone can be a member and no membership fee or dues are collected. We provide education through monthly programs (generally in the form of a presentation), field days during the non-winter months at the club apiaries, and our annual Bee School.
The Kalamazoo Bee Club is a 501(c)3.

Monthly club meetings generally take place on the second Wednesday of the month. The board invites input from the club members and welcomes anyone who would like to come to the meeting to attend. Contact the club (firstname.lastname@example.org) or one of the board members to find out the location of the current meeting as the location changes. If you have ideas or would be interested in serving on the board, please come and participate in making the club all it can be. When you are at a club event, make it a point to meet and talk to board members. Share your ideas and if you have areas in which you would like to serve the club, please let them know.
