Is there a beekeeper on your holiday list? Consider giving your beekeeper a ticket to this year’s Bee School. They’ll BEE glad you did!

Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club

We are here for the purpose of educating people about beekeeping, supporting beekeepers, and to provide bee-related services to the greater Kalamazoo area community. 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 an educational presentation), field-days during the non-winter months at the club apiary, and our annual Bee School.

Next Club Meeting

No Meeting in December. Our next club meeting is January 14, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at the Kalamazoo Nature Center. Our speaker is our very own Sheldon Schwitek of Bee Snug.  Honey isn’t the only marketable product from your hive. Many beekeepers use the honey, beeswax, pollen, and propolis to produce lotions, lip balms, salves and other value-added products. Sheldon will share his knowledge and experience about “other” hive products.
