Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
The Kalamazoo Bee Club provides beekeeping education, support, and bee-related services to the greater Kalamazoo area. The Kalamazoo Bee Club is an open club—anyone can be a member; no membership fee or dues are collected. We provide education through monthly programs (generally in the form of an educational presentation), field days during the non-winter months at the club apiary, and our annual Bee School.

So You’re Thinking About Keeping Bees?
with Charlotte Hubbard
In an information-packed, interactive session, Charlotte reviews the financial, time, physical and other commitments beekeeping requires, along with starter info like hive location and preparation, basic equipment types and essentials, and the various options for obtaining bees, followed by a Q&A session. This session will help bring new beekeepers up to speed for our February Bee School beginners trackl; we strongly urge you to attend it if possible.
